    It seems Eric was getting his information from a translated order. He did not write if the date of the order was translated, or who the order was from.

    "Carl: Thanx for the go-between, it was a translated Russian order of battle for the 13 Tank Corps even tho it was a Mech Corps. Strange but true! "

    The 13th was organized as a mechanized corps, with 13th Tank Brigade, 17th, 61st and 62nd Mechanized Brigades by 1 November 1942, but it was not designated as a Mechanized Corps until it received its Guards title, when the "13th Tank Corps" became the "4th Guards Mechanized Corps" in January 1943. As far as I know, the 13th was the only 'Tank Corps' to have such a peculiar organization
    During November 1942 it also included the 565th Antitank Regiment, 398th Antiaircraft Regiment and 214th Sapper (Combat Engineer) Battalion. The tank units in the mechanized brigades were 44th Tank Regiment in 17th Brigade, 176th Tank Regiment in 61st Brigade, and 163rd Tank Regiment in 62nd Brigade.

    Pretty sure that after 1941 where were no Mechanized Corps numbered higher than 10 and (without checking closely) none numbered higher than 6 before 1943.

    Here were no 13th Mechcorps in 1942.
    Maybe you mean the 13th Tank Corps?
