    Hello, Yann

    Unfortunately you need too specified info
    I can't be sure that I obtain such. Mayb in unprocessed books on my CD some things may be found, but now hardly I'll be able t find them...maybe later..

    I asked my friend about flamethrowers in the Kursk battle..maybe he knows if there were separate tank battalions of them in use

    To check the number of KV-1s one need to obtain strength reports of Soviet Tank units. Now again I don't obtain such

    Lend-lease tanks were used, but now I can't cite exact data, again need strength reports which seems to be missed in my collection or maybe hiden in some deep corner

    T-60 seemed to be replaced by T-70, but some amount could still existed, (damn strength reports, how I need them )

    It's very hard to distinguish T-34M42 and M43 as in strength reports usualy they are given in one column
    Sorry if I disappointed you...If I get something like this I'll upload it :sleep:
    If you fire a rifle at the past, the future will fire a cannon at you.....

      May be, he speaks about light tanks commonly?

      And more, I recommend for French guy to visit militera.lib.ru where there are HUGE amount o FREE history data.

        I consider that he doesn't know Russian and can "swim" in that ocean of info in Militers. Besides I'm not sure that militera contains strength reports which he need

              I saw that book and can't name it much informative....
              It's better to check document links (Orders and other documents
              http://docs.vif2.ru/
              http://ww2doc.50megs.com/Issues.html

              but there exists a huge heap of them in Russian. Not all can be automatically translated...
              I'll try in the next updates to extract at least maps from them....

                - Did Russian use Flamethrower Tanks OT34 and KV8 ? If Yes, numbers and units if you know of course !!
                - good question...next question...

                - Does the number of KV1s is known as far as now (units involved ?)
                - twenty-five KV-1s ( 5th guard tank army: 1x KV-1; 2nd Voroneshh front: 24x KV-1; )

                - How many T-60 fought during the period 5-15 July of Kursk ?
                - thirty-six T-60s;


                - Quantities and type of Marder used by german Army ?
                ...I mean Marder II
                MarderII(76,2mm)
                Marder III (76,2mm)
                Marder IIIh
                Marder IIIm
                - fifty-five Marder IIs;
                - fourty-eight Marder IIIs;
                - IIIh & IIIm ... ?


                - Numbers and German units using STUH42
                (Any in SS Div ?)
                - ... dunno...

                - Units using Lend-Lease equipment ?)
                *Voronezh Front*
                - 48x MK-4 "Churchill";
                - 47x MK-2 "Mathilda" and MK-3 "Valentine";
                - 133x М-3 "General Lee";

                *5th Guards Tank Army*
                - 41x MK-4 "Churchill";


                BUT - Babelfish doesn't work with this source, and I didn't learn the russian language...so don't count to much on these infos until russian speaking gentlemen check the source....

                  There is no "2nd Voronezh Front", there is "Voronezh Front"

                  5th Guard Tank Army was part of Steppe Front (in reserve in rear) in start of battle but was transfered in Voronezh Front during battle after first German successes in south part of Kursk Arche.

                      Is there a way to make narod sites load faster? I waited 15 mins for that link to open, and it didn't.

                        Sorry, if there is a solution to load the sites faster, I'm not aware of it. I have a flatrate, but it still takes 3-5 minutes for me until I see the site...:sleep:

                          I finally got the website.
                          I don't really agree with the author's claim that Red Army infantry with grenades and Molotovs were responsible for most KO'd panzers during Zitadelle.:crazy:
                          I would say it was mines and short-range AT guns which did the most damage to German AFVs, followed by tanks and field/heavy artillery. Keep in mind it's not necessary to achieve penetration to KO a tank. All you need is a track/engine hit and the AFV is temporarily out-of-action.

                          BTW, to use babelfish, try;
                          1.Copy the Cyrillic text
                          2.Open a new, blank Word document
                          3.Edit/Paste Special/(As Unformatted (unicode) text
                          4.Copy THIS text and paste into the Babelfish window and... voila! It should work.

                            If you means my http//rkkaww2.narod.ru to the only way to make it faster, to use mirror
                            http://rkkaww2.armchairgeneral.com
                            No other ways to affect on Narod.ru neither from my side, nor from anybody's else from its users

                            If you want to see the site which was cited above, the only way to make it quicker is to download it using any offline browser and then brows through it offline.
                            Narod.ru proved to be damn slow hoster, but providing the best conditions in the free size for the sites
                            If you fire a rifle at the past, the future will fire a cannon at you.....

                              Yup, I agree with you.

                              Thank you for the tip Sean! But I'm far too lazy for so much action... so I tried another internet translation service : World Lingo - and it works with the Prokhorovka-Battle-Narod.ru site !
