1223rd Self Propelled Gun Regiment
This Regiment formed one of the Self Propelled Gun Regiments attached to the 29th Tank Corps in 1944. This unit was one of two equipped with lend lease M10 tank destroyers, unfortunately there is only a single picture and no details on their combat performance (see http://www.o5m6.de/m10_wolverine.html). Each Regiment has 4 "companies" (equal to a single German platoon) each of which is represented by a single M10 (US19) stand. A fifth M10 is used as the HQ. The Regiment also has a tank riding SMG company (SR3).
14th Guards Separate Heavy Tank Regiment
This Regiment was occasionally attached to the 29th Tank Corps (from the 5th Guards Tank Army reserve) so forms one of the optional Army level attachments available for the BKC version of the 29th Tank Corps. As with the 1223rd Regiment above this Regiment also has 4 "companies" each of which is represented by a single IS-2 (S16) stand. A fifth IS-2 is used as the HQ. The Regiment also has a tank riding SMG company (SR3).
20th Guards Super Heavy Howitzer Artillery Brigade
Another small but powerful Russian unit, consisting of 4 Super Heavy Artillery Battalions. As each Battalion had three batteries of two 203mm howitzers I decided to represent each Battalion with a single 203mm Howitzer (S33). For on table use I may well add a set of S65 tractors (S46) and probably a HQ.
