    So where did the Greatest Tank Battle actually take place ??

    June 1941 near Raseiniai , Lithuania the full strength 6th Panzer Divison was counter attacked by 300 tanks of the 3rd and 12th Soviet Mechanized Corps , anyone else want to throw in some thoughts ??

    cheers

    hey Paul.

    Well i have known that Kursk and the combats that took place during it ARE NOT the biggest, perhaps greatest?, thats down to opinion. I am a avid reader of David M. Glantz. He states on a real good youtube video of his seminar about Soviet/German war of myths and realities that in 1941 in the Ukraine, i`ll recheck the video or you can.

    Great link Kent , very interesting i'm also a gig fan of Glantzs work , he mentions Raseiniai and Staraya Russa but also states that Zhukovs action in late june 1941 near Dubno / Brody using 6 Soviet Mechanised Corps was the largest of all Tank Battles !!
