MeadowPrecisely Comrade.

Cookie for whoever knows what the Katyushas were mounted on!

Early Katyushas were mounted on Russian trucks. Contrary to what you may think, the Katyusha rocket artillery system didn't just spring up because a superior American truck came over as part of the Lend Lease Act. The Soviets already had mobile rocket artillery in the 30s.

This looks like a ZIS-5 to me...

First of all, don't EVER confuse me with one of those jerks that thinks the USA had to have something to do with everything that possibly aided the war. What I should have said was 'the Katyusha in FH/BF1942'.

But as I said, please don't paint me with the same brush as the 16 year old US 'patriots' who go into flaming fits if someone even mentions the Russians acheiving somerthing by themselves.

Another thing that would be cool is on Russian Battlefield there is a BA-64 armored car that had the upper part cut off and was being used like a regular jeep.

And Im sick and f$%ing tired of people trying to downplay any help the Soviets recieved from US or Britain or they say the help they recieved didnt matter.

Im not saying it won the war but some here dont even want its existence acknowledged.

Is it really that hard on Russian pride to admit they accepted help?

Facts are facts. Deal with it. Russians recieved equipment and vehicles and they used it, bitching about Russians using US or Brit equipemnt doesnt change the fact that the equipment was used.

People have bitched about the Matilda II and Churchill being on FH Russian maps. The fact was they were used.
