Enemy at the Gates Hero Rifle Battalion (SUAB14)

Enemy at the Gates Hero Rifle Battalion (SUAB14)
After a few days of battle, rifle battalions would be reduced to the strength of a weak company. While this reduced their theoretical combat power, the survivors were hardened by their experience in the furnace of battle, and had learned how to fight and stay alive. Having learned the cost of headlong charges and the value of keeping their troops alive, experienced battalion commanders allow their troops more latitude in how they fight.

The soldiers of the Red Army frequently demonstrated their lethality in close quarters assaults. Fighting to rid the beloved Motherland of the fascist invaders, they show little mercy. they were not permitted to stop and take cover for fear that they would not advance again.

These 45mm anti-tank guns are extremely mobile in the hands of their Soviet crews, but they have to be, as the Soviets are rarely afforded the luxury of motorised tow vehicles. These elite tank-killers were hand-picked for their skillful handling of their weapons, which accounted for 70% of all German panzers destroyed by the Red Army.

The 122mm artillery gun throws a bigger shell than the equivalent German howitzer over a longer range, they destroyed guns, tanks, and infantry with equal ease. When rolled up to point-blank range, their brutal shells easily eliminated any target.

The Red Army was a world leader in the field of rocketry. They used truck-mounted salvo rocket launchers against the Germans right from the start of the war. These saturated a large area with explosives, quickly pinning down the enemy and causing widespread casualties Enemy at the Gates Hero Rifle Battalion (SUAB14)

During the battle for Stalingrad the Sniper became a dreaded fear for the soldiers of both sides. A well-positioned sniper could hold up whole platoons and companies with a few well-aimed shots. They cause panic and fear with their sudden strikes, taking otherwise confident units completely off guard, forcing them to take cover and halt their advance while they scanned the surroundings wondering who the next shot will hit. Weary veterans soon learned to move quickly and irregularly in the open and keep their heads down.
