Kursk – USSR
The largest tank battle ever fought and the failure of Blitzkrieg tactics. Germany and the USSR amassed large armies to contend the Kursk salient, a large bulge that penetrated the Eastern Frontline. Hitler’s delayed offensive to bring in the new Tiger and Panther tanks provided ample time for the Soviets to prepare deep-defence systems. But when a single Tiger tank destroyed 22 Soviet T-34 tanks, the Soviet tank crews changed their tactics and drove ‘gung-ho’ style at full speed, so that they could fire at the weaker sides of the Tigers.
