The USSR received from the allies more than 18,500 armored vehicles (tanks, self-propelled guns, armored personnel carriers) – this is 17.6% of the total production in the USSR.
In total, the U.S. deliveries to the USSR through Lend-Lease amounted to $11 billion in materials: over 400,000 jeeps and trucks; 12,000 armored vehicles (including 7,000 tanks, about 1,386 of which were M3 Lees and 4,102 M4 Shermans); 11,400 aircraft (4,719 of which were Bell P-39 Airacobras) and 1.75 million tons of food.
The inscription on the tank: "Forward to victory"
German soldier: throws rock
Sherman: gets hit with rock
Also Sherman: explodes
The 10 other Shermans that have already been built to take it’s place: "allow us to introduce ourselves"
M4A2, judging by the muzzle brake, that’s a 76mm boi.
Can anyone translate what’s written on the side?
mm I bet that Sherman blasted some nazi scum back to hell.
The white writing on the tank is "Forward to victory!"
They loved the M3 Lee though. They turned it into an improvised APV, stuffing 10 infantry into it and STILL able to fire all its guns.
Even as a Bosnian, I can read the inscription on the tank. The Slavic languages really are similar.
