    The crew members of a Soviet 85mm Model 39 anti-tank gun get ready for action. This gun was almost the equivalent of the German "88", being just a bit less powerful. An anti-tank round from this gun could penetrate 100mm vertical armoured plate at a range of 1,000 meters (about 1,100 yards), while the "88" could penetrate almost 140mm of armour at a 30 degree angle.
