About the Russian Infantry and Tank Crew Set While sustaining huge losses at the onset of war, the Russian army was able to halt theGerman advance just short of Moscow thanks largely to the strength of their tank troops.Following concentrated artillery fire, tanks advanced in three waves with infantry riding on thetanks of the 2nd and 3rd waves. Since the Russian Ground Forces did not possess armoredtroop carriers like halftracks and universal carriers, so-called Motor Rifle Units were attachedto every tank brigade to provide infantry support. Once encountering an enemys defensiveposition, tank riders would disembark, attack the position, and then remount to proceed withthe offensive. These infantrymen spearheaded many attacks, and suffered heavy casualtiesfrom defending fire.
