To war with Cossack by tank!
For comparison sake!
"The best allied tank ace Dmitriy Lavrinenko"
"WWII Soviet Tank Aces"
"From the web site author: "This aces list of world war II is incomplete, because in Red army almost weren't statistics about personal victories of tankers. Destroyed SPGs [self-propelled guns and armored cars also] were counted as tanks. In many cases I had to use fragmental sources for this aces rating, so some scores may be actually bigger."
"Dmitry Fyodorovich Lavrinenko . . . was a Soviet tank commander and Hero of the Soviet Union. He was the highest scoring tank ace of the Allies during World War II."
"Lavrinenko destroyed 52 tanks in just 2 1/2 months of fierce fighting in 1941. This was an outstanding result in the Soviet Army, and no single Allied tank officer surpassed him during the whole war."
Dmitry commanding a T-34/76. Far [?] superior to German tanks of the period and year . Even exceedingly superior! Dmitry had an unfair advantage? That number of German armor destroyed to include self-propelled guns and even armored cars?
See that entire listing of Soviet tank aces from the Second World War [WW2].
Soviet tankers during 1941 also having lots and lots and lots of targets to shoot at!!
