  • USSR in the WW2 battle maps

    Hi, all!
    I'm writing this message for all, who are interested in battles of the Soviet Army 1938-45.
    I collected a good massive of those maps. Lots of them are posted on my site http://rkkaww2.armchairgeneral.com
    Now my collection includes more than 500 battle maps and schemes and contains more than 100Mbs.
    I obtain much more materials and the uploading process is in progress....
    You may follow monthly newsletter on this message board.

    Always welcome.
    Alex

      Hi amvas, I have been a regular visitor to your site for the past year. It's a great site and i have found the maps, schemes and text very helpful for my research.
      Thanks for that.

      I want to ask about the 13th Army anti-tank defensive scheme for Kursk '43 from your site.
      In the defensive area held by 15th Rifle Div. there are two reserve units (South East of Podolyan, i think at Bobrik)

      Then to the east, another position labelled as "81 wp" where you put a blue questionmark ?
      The reserve units appear to be labelled "KCN", some sort of rifle regiment but i don't know what the K means, it's not a high res image, so difficult to read.

      [i do not have an alfavit tool.]

      My friend offered these translations for the "81 wp":
      "штабная рота" - HQ company.
      "штрафная рота", "disciplinary company".
      He thinks it's most probably a disciplanary company - naughty expendable human wave types.
      what do you think amvas???

      I still have no ideas on the reserve "KCN".
      If it was my choice, i suppose i would have motorised rifle regiments in those positions, but that's "MCN"
      Amvas, what is your opinion???

      Also if you have or know where to findinformation about distribution of lend-lease tanks and afvs/apcs in the 70th, 13th or 2nd Tank Army, or any really important distinguishing information about any unit on that Central Front,
      would you please let me know.

      Thankyou.

        That aren't all...
        I have some talks about new materials....
        Sorry that not much maps last time. Damn lack of time...Hope to
        publish more this year....

        Can't find Bobrik point, but never mind....

        81st Penalty (disciplinary) Company makes sense to my mind. HQ company-nonsense

        I think it's "Rezerv Komandira Polka" - "KCP", not "KCN"
        Transalted as "reserve of Regimental Commander"
        It's worth to say that I found another map in my achieve which date
        is ~1944 year. I consider it to be used for presented map.
        and interesting fact, among that two reserves one (left) is named "Reserve of
        Regimental Commander" - RCP, and another (right) - "Reserve of
        DIVISIONAL commander" - RCD!
        Which one is erratum? 8-D I suspect that two reserves of regimental
        commander made less sense...


        TWFF> Also if you have or know where to findinformation about

                  Hi Amvas!
                  I have a very high opinion of Your site. I check it up often. Am very interested in historical maps. In the file Barbarossa map -41 at tdg.nu I am describing my uploads. They are scanned by me from original mostly german or italian ww2 maps.
                  Now mostly A3 scans in 3-7 MB size.I guess over 100 maps have been offered. In the back ground is the purpose of ongoingly updating my TOAW map
                  to be as reliable as possible for the time june-41
                  I must remark that my maps are not "LageKarten"
                  but topographically orientated.Goranw
