    Alright, the research came in and I like it very much. The citation couldn't be found on the internet, so I will order another research from Auke and see if it can be found directly from the archives. I will attach the translated award sheets.

    Senior Lieutenant, Mikhail Petrovich Kolyada.

    The insignia that his brigade used. Interesting, that they used more captured German tanks than T-34's at one point.

    I also read that the 213th tank brigade was the only one to be fully armed with captured material.
