Quote:On July 22 of 1944, 1st Lieutenant Otto Carius with his company of eight (early and mid production) Tigers advanced towards village of Malinava (northern suburb of Dunaburg) in order to halt the Russian advance. 1st Lieutenant Otto Carius and 1st Lieutenant Albert Kerscher (one of the most decorated commanders of sPzAbt 502) took a Kubelwagen in order to check if the village was already occupied by Russians. They discovered that village of Malinava was already occupied by the enemy. Carius recognized that the Russian tanks in the village were only advance troops waiting for the main force to arrive. He decided to recapture the village before the arrival of reinforcements. Carius returned to his company for briefing and explained his plan to take the village. He decided to attack the village using only two tanks because there was only one road leading to the village and rushing all of his Tigers would be dangerous. Six Tigers remained in the reserve while Carius and Kerscher's Tigers moved towards the village of Malinava. Speed was the essence of Carius' strategy and it was decisive to upset Russians and immobilize their tanks.
When Carius' Tiger No.217 was about to enter the village, two T-34/85 tanks were observed rotating their turrets. At this moment, Kerscher's Tiger No.213, which followed Carius at about 150m, fired and knocked them out. Also for the first time, Otto Carius encountered Russian's latest JS-1 (or possibly JS-2) heavy tank. Its silhouette was somewhat similar to the German King Tiger and Carius was confused at first but after hesitating a bit, he fired and JS-1 burst into flames. Afterwards, Otto Carius recalls that the entire battle did not last more than 20 minutes. In such a short time, Carius and Kerscher's Tigers knocked out 17 Russian tanks including the new JS-1. Although the Russians were attacked by suprise, Carius' quick and accurate recognition of the situation and the excellent tactics used were the main factors in the outcome. Carius' achievement at Malinava is perhaps as equally outstanding as Michael Wittmann's achievement at Villers-Bocage.

Quote:...Even for this crucial offencive,only four IS-2 regiments could be allotted:(2nd OGTTP with the 1st Baltic Front, 14th and 35th OGTTP with 3rd Bielorussian Front and 30th OGTTP with 1st Bielorussian Front) acted in the operation and two of these (2nd and 30th) gained great honors being granted of the names of the towns they helped liberate
The Stalin regiments were used, as the German heavy tank battalions, in the most critical points of the front. But while the Germans' were used as defensive fire-brigades the Soviets' were employed in breaktrough operations. The fronts where these breaktroughs had to be archieved were chosen where the German tank forces were particularly weak. In this way, the heavy tanks saw little tank-vs-tank fight: their true enemy became the infantry weapons, particularly the Panzerfausts and Panzerschrecks along with the towed PaK 40 75mm anti-tank gun. 结论：Otto Carius面对的不是装备JS-2的部队。
