46th Guards Tank Brigade

Description

The 9th Guards Mechanized Corps followed behind the lead cavalry and tank units of the cavalry corps thrusting towards the Tisza River. Of all the types of corps in the Red Army arsenal, the Mechanized Corps in probably the most powerful. Each mechanized corps had six tank battalions and twelve rifle battalions as well as an array of supporting heavy tanks, assault guns, rockets, reconnaissance and anti-aircraft.

The 46th Guards Tank Brigade was armed with lend-lease M4A2 Sherman's and had among their ranks the incomparable Gvardeyskiy Kapitan Dmitriy Loza. During the battles for Hungary he commanded the 1st Company of the 1st Tank Battalion, but was often entrusted with subsidiary command roles by his Brigade and Battalion commanders. He would often take charge of forward detachments or command the battalion when his commander was away. His unique abilities will prove vital in the upcoming battle.
