Soviet Anti-Tank Rifle Tactics of WW2

[videojs youtube=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTusD4OiQZU”]
Soviet Anti-Tank Rifle Tactics of World War 2 based upon a translated Soviet Manual from 1942. Soviet Anti-Tank rifles like the PTRD 41 and PTRS 41 produced some trouble for the German Panzers, this is clearly shown by the introduction of the so-called “Schürzen” Armor Skirts that safeguarded the side hull and turret armor of many Panzers and Sturmgeschütze. This video covers anti-tank rifle positions, how to lead, weak points to go for, cooperation with other arms and the general work of anti-tank rifle units.
