  1. Dmitri Turenkov says

    The documentary portrays the newly appointed commander of 7th Tank Corps, general P-Rotmistrov (the officer with glasses). Prior to his appointment, Rotmistrov had been the commander of 3rd Guards tank brigade, former 8th TBr. In the spring of 1942 all KV tanks from all over the 7th Tank Corps will be handed over to the 3rd Guards tank brigade and it will become "heavytank". Number *3* in a circle on tank turrets is the tactical sign of this brigade.
