I saw this on a different forum and it's just amazing how the Russian mud stops whole convoys
More, NONE of these are my pictures. They are from a different forum.
That is some serious mud! Nothing is worse than having to slog through the mire.
Thanks for posting B-17 ,real interesting pics - those 3 Tigers look very impressive
Interesting shot of what appear to be fresh Pzkw IV's being dug out... that'll spoil the carpet!
Interesting stuff, thanks for sharing.
Soviets had plenty experience with this kind of weather conditions that is why most of their tanks had much wider tracks then German tanks to begin with. Just compare T-34 with PzKw III and PzKw IV for example...
I think the one of the truck almost on it's side and the drivers door is open.
Also, poor horse
Here is one more picture...

What a mess.
It pretty bad when you have to go diving to find your tank.
Nothing's changed in Russia since then.
Wow. lol. Thanks for the pictures
Holy crap...you read about the mud in all those books, but until you actually see pics (or better yet....dive in yourself!)...
Great pics, B17!
Thats some seriously deep mud!
Dam, that would seriously stink!
Well what can you say?
Hmm, I thought this thread might have something to do with me.
When I've seen footage on the Russian mud; "time of no roads" or something I think they called it, it looked to be some of the worst gooey clay mess I had ever seen. It looked like it would bear some small amount of weight but if it was churned up or rolled over by equipment it looks more like wet cement than mud.
And how many boots do you think the Wermacht lost in that mess?
