Battery of ZiS-3 Field Guns
|Field guns ready to repel the enemy|
Most Soviet divisional artillery were equipped with the ZiS-3, as were many dedicated anti-tank units.
Battery of 82 BM-37 82mm Mortars
|The battalion's mortar battery deployed for action. The forward observer is relaying the fire order....|
I also painted a battery of 4 82mm mortars from Plastic Soldier and added a forward observer from Battlefront. These mortars were also used during the entire war, and beyond. Mortars that are almost identical are still in service all over the world.
T34sI painted the 3 T34s from Battlefront's box of plastic early T34s. They come with several turrets, guns and various options, not just the early obr40 and obr 41 models mentioned on the box, but mid- and late war versions too..
I chose to do 3 different turrets for each tank. One corresponds to the T34/76 obr 40 model, one represents the T34/76 obr 42, and one the T34/85 obr 43. Quite good value with, in effect, 3 different tanks at the same time.
This allows me to represent almost any T34-equipped platoon from Barbarossa all the way to '45.
