Amazing - I didn't know anyone re-enacted the Russian army Les

Les Auld: No they don't Bill, thanks for the comment.
This is a really interesting series. (:o)
Les Auld: Thanks Rosalyn, a couple more to come.

Les Auld: They do put a lot of effort Linda, thanks for the comment.
By which time the tank is past and well on its way grin
Les Auld: So they shoot it in the back I suppose, thanks for the comment Brian.
They haven't missed much out Les..Great series.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, appreciate the comment.
An interesting looking rifle, high velocity and small calibre, I wonder what specific part they aimed for, the driver perhaps. Good series.
Les Auld: I believe it is the PTRD 1941 model with a 14.5mm cartridge. By the time it was introduced it was, to all accounts, pretty useless unless at point blank range. No use at all head-on but could be partially effective from the side or the rear I suppose. Thanks for the comment John.
