KV-2 near the settlement of Raseiniai

The KV-1 and KV-2 tanks were very good machines for their time. The German machines were superior in firepower (76.2 and 152.2mm guns) and armour. Several specific cases are known from the initial battles of Operation Barbarossa, when a small group or even a single machine held back the advance of an entire German division! Some Russian tank aces also served on KV machines (but mostly KV-1). Given the right terrain, thanks to a good gun and the strength of the armour, the coffee can was able to destroy even a considerably more numerous opponent. A similar style of combat can be seen with the Germans at the end of the war in Europe, when a properly positioned Tiger or Panther could destroy huge numbers of opponents.

An example of the fierce, brave and yet futile fight of KV-2 of the Soviet Second Panzer Division is the battle of Raseiniai (Расейняй/Rasyeinyia)1) on 23-25 June 1941. Its brave crew managed to block the advance of units of the 6th Panzer Division for two days in June 1941 in Lithuania2). The fighting there included KV-1E, T-34 and a number of T-26.

Our story begins with the removal of captured Russian soldiers... Soldiers captured in the fighting, loaded onto a truck, were moved in the evening to the settlement of Raseiniai for interrogation. The crew gets on the truck, the guards with rifles get on the back with the prisoners. After some time, only the driver returned to say that there was a huge tank of unknown type on the road between the river and Raseiniai and opened fire on them... Successful, as the truck was destroyed. Several Germans from the guard platoon were killed and the Russians dispersed... The command, aware that this tank was blocking one of the main quality access routes, acted. At that time the Germans had not yet paid due attention to the type and the report of the ambush was conducted in the sense of "One tank means nothing, but more may appear". The night passed quietly. In the morning a patrol sent out by the Germans reported that the Russian colossus was still standing. In the morning of the same day the German command received a radiogram that the desired ammunition was being sent to it, the supply of which was slowly running low. The column of cars unfortunately drove along the road within range of the Russian tank. The tank opened heavy fire, destroying the first and last ammunition truck... The terrible explosions and the blocking of the road does not allow the other cars to continue and they become the target of Russian 152mm shells. In a few seconds the motorcade is turned into a pile of burning scrap... A second radio dispatch, delivered in a flash, orders the immediate destruction of the Russian tank! The commander of one of the 50mm PaK 38 batteries is given the task of eliminating the tank. Taking advantage of the terrain wave, 4 tractor-trailers with anti-tank guns set off towards the again silent tank. 600 meters from the colossus, the tractor-trailers stop and the PaK operators, as they have been taught, deploy, cloak and aim at the Russian machine. The KV stood silent by a small wood. The battery commander thought that the crew might have left, but still he gives the command and the Germans shower the tank with 50mm shells. The first three hits are accurate, the explosion is always accompanied by loud shouts from the Wehrmacht soldiers watching. The battery commander, encouraged by the success, gives the command to open fire... All four fifties are firing, the Russian tank is being showered with shells... Fourth hit, fifth... But the Germans keep charging and firing over each other, unmasking their positions. Sixth, seventh, eighth hit... But then comes the shock. The Coffee has opened defensive fire. The soldiers, with cries of triumph frozen on their lips, jump into the trenches... The first shell lands between two German guns... soil and shrapnel fly through the air... The second grenade hits one of the German fifties. The last, third 152mm Russian shell hits another German gun... Three shots were enough. After the smoke clears, the Germans survey the damage... Two of the anti-tank guns are down and the other two are damaged and partially buried.

Since the "50s" failed to destroy the tank, Gen. Franz Landgraf to use the famous 8.8cm FlaK to destroy it. One of the 298.FlaK.Abt. guns is towed by a wheeled tractor at maximum range to the tank. Camouflaged by branches and fires from the still burning ammunition wagons, it is directed towards the woods. At a distance of 900 yards the tractor stops and the "88" operator begins preparations to use the gun. At that moment the turret of the coffee truck began to turn towards the working Germans. The Russian tank fired only once. A heavy 152mm shell explodes two meters in front of the prepared "88". The blast literally shattered it into small pieces, and the tank crew still peppered the position with machine gun fire on the turret.

In the headquarters of Gen. Landgraf was very stuffy. The general himself was furious, the troops at the front were firing their last rounds, there was nothing to eat and the road to the rear was blocked by an "indestructible" tank!! Before nightfall, the command orders to destroy the tank with heavy charges. This highly dangerous task fell to the soldiers of the 57th Reconnaissance Detachment. Around 1 a.m. they set out to destroy it. After half an hour of silence, there is a brief flash and a hollow bang, the tank's machine guns briefly bark and silence falls.

The general, nervously smoking a cigarette, waited in person for the report on the outcome of the action. Some time later, the figures of the returning scouts emerged from the darkness. Unfortunately, their commander had brought bad news. The charge was very weak and the explosion had only destroyed the right belt and fender!

The raging General asks the Union Command to destroy the tank with a Bomber Stukas strike. The request is denied by his superiors due to the impossibility of deploying a squadron of Junkers to destroy one Russian machine.

The last option to destroy the tank was to attack the tanks from several directions. Along with them, 88mm guns brought into position during the attack were to open fire. On the morning of 25.06.1941, the tanks of Pz.35(t) Tank Regiment 11 began to move towards the damaged KV. Several dozen tanks launched an attack shortly afterwards. Literally a hurricane of shells from light tanks showered the Russian colossus. Russian tankers busy fighting the moving German tanks did not notice the prepared German "88". The Germans quickly prepared the Flak for combat and fired at the large turret offering a very good target. Hit! The turret of the Russian tank failed to penetrate, but moreover it began to turn towards the German position. At that moment, two 88mm anti-tank shells fired in quick succession buried themselves in the side of the turret. The tank still did not fire. "88" therefore continued to fire. After a few shots, the German infantry made their way to the tank, amazed to find only two bullet holes in the turret! Five others merely bounced off the armor. Also visible were 8 dents from yesterday's 50mm PaK38 hits. The Czechoslovak tanks' shells left no significant marks on the armour of the Russian colossus. The soldiers observed the belt and fender destroyed by the night blast. From a safe distance they slowly approached the tank. After climbing onto the tank, they tried to pry open the hatches, but even then the tank crew would not surrender. The turret began to rotate with a clatter and creak, throwing the German soldiers down from the tank. Two of them, however, quickly unlocked their "handgranate" and threw them inside the tank through the holes left by the "88" rounds. Two muffled explosions are the last sound coming from the tank.

After the hatches were opened, the bodies of six still nameless heroes were found inside the tank (presumably 169th Rifle Division?), who with a single tank managed to hold back the advance of an entire tank division for 48 hours.

Probably most of the photos are just of the famous Raseinia machine. I'm also aware of three colour images. The machine is captured at different times of the advance. Its colouring is classic all-green. However, the photos show a "tired" white triangle on the hatch on the turret. It is debatable whether another marking on the side of the vehicle - the white cross was painted by the Germans or was it a Russian(?) marking. In fact, another color image from the area is known to show, in addition to the destroyed T-26, a KV-1E with an almost identically painted cross. Behind this machine there is another one spread out on the prime movers.

There has been a lot of material on both KV-1 and 2 recently. Both on paper and on the internet. I recommend to build publications Tankograd. You will hardly find more high quality photos and very good materials. From the net I would refer most to eBay or then to discussion forums where you can get really rare images.

2) This machine was not the only one fighting at this settlement. Multiple units of the Russian 2nd Panzer Division and German 6th Panzer Division operated against each other in the area. The Germans lost nearly 40 tanks and guns here, and the Russian division was almost broken with heavy losses.

Here 3) My Russian is not good enough anymore, so I don't know what it was supposed to be correctly - rodinu, gadinu, godunu. But according to clever people and dictionaries it's probably something like: gadina-gadina I couldn't find in the dictionary, but
Russian snake = змеевик-zmeevik, змея-zmeja,
viper = viper-gadjuka,
plaz = badger-gad
disgust: disorder, abomination, filthiness, filthiness
nasty: disgusting, filthy, vile, ugly, nasty
It's probably some kind of swear word.

I was intrigued by the above description of a Soviet heavy tank battle that halted the advance of an entire German panzer division on Lithuanian territory in the early days of the war in June 1941. It seemed to me that I had come across a similar story before, so I searched back for publications and articles in which I had read something similar. My "hunch" was correct - this battle was described differently in each source, while it is obvious that it is the same story. I have therefore compared the different sources, and in the following lines I will take the liberty of supplementing the previous post with additional information and corrections.

The original author of the description of this battle is German Colonel General Erhard Raus, who in June 1941, at the rank of Colonel, commanded the 6th Rifle Brigade (Schützen-Brigade) of the 6th Armoured Division, XLI Motorised Corps, 4th Panzer Group (Army Group "North"). After the end of World War II, while in American captivity, E. Raus was involved in a project of technical studies written by senior German officers for the needs of the US Army. In one of these studies the story of the Soviet heavy tank was described and from there it was taken up by American and British historians in the late 1960s and subsequently published. Over the ensuing decades, the story wandered through a number of books and articles, and some of its current forms differ quite markedly from the original account. (A collection of E. Raus's studies was published in book form in 2002 under the title "Panzers on the Eastern Front: General Erhard Raus and his Panzer Divisions in Russia, 1941-1945". In Czech translation this book was published I think by Jota Military).

According to E.Raus, the above mentioned event took place on 24-25 June 1941 northeast of the town of Raseiniai (current name) in Lithuania during the fighting of the 6th Panzer Division with the Soviet 2nd Panzer Division of the 3rd Mechanized Corps of the 11th Army (Northwest Front). E.Raus commanded one of the kampfgruppen into which the forces of the 6th Panzer Division were divided. It was Kampfgruppe "Raus", which participated in the capture of Raseiniai on 23.6.1941 and then advanced northeast in the direction of the town of Shiluva (current name). During its advance it captured two bridges over the Dubysa River and established a bridgehead near the village of Kibareteliai (historical name). It halted its advance there because on 24 June 1941 Kampfgruppe "von Zeckendorff" and the rest of the main forces of the 6th Armored Division got into heavy fighting with units of the Soviet 2nd Panzer Division. These battles took place east of Raseiniai and south of the bridgehead created by Kampfgruppe "Raus".

In the forenoon of 24.6.1941 a truck with a driver and one guard escorting about 20 Soviet prisoners left the bridgehead and headed back to Raseiniai. On the way it met a Soviet heavy tank which started shelling it. The Soviet POWs took advantage of this situation to try to escape, but only a few succeeded. The truck turned around and returned to the bridgehead, where the two German soldiers reported the incident. E.Raus states verbatim that this incident became the first signal that the only way out of the bridgehead into the German rear was blocked by a "super-heavy KV-1 tank". A reconnaissance patrol was dispatched to the scene of the encounter, and on its return reported that a lone Soviet heavy tank was standing motionless on the road between Raseiniai and the bridgehead, occasionally firing into the German rear in the direction of Raseiniai. This report implied that it was most likely a tank that had penetrated the German rear during the intense fighting in the Kampfgruppe "von Zeckendorff" section.

Although it was only a lone machine, its position made it impossible to supply Kampfgruppe "Raus", as the tank blocked the only road between the bridgehead and Raseiniai. With its fire it hit 12 trucks carrying supplies and at the same time hindered the evacuation of the wounded back to the German rear. It was impossible to get around the tank because the terrain along the road was swampy and groups of retreating Soviet soldiers were still moving in the surrounding woods. E.Raus therefore gave the order to destroy the tank, which was to be accomplished by Lieutenant Wengenroth's battery of 50mm anti-tank guns (PaK-38). The German soldiers pushed their four anti-tank guns to within 600 meters of the tank and opened fire. The target was hit 8 times when the Soviet tank returned fire, destroying two anti-tank guns and damaging two. (E.Raus states that "the tank was firing an 80mm calibre gun", again indicating that it was a KV-1).

While the first attempt to destroy the tank was made from the northeast direction by a battery detached from Kampfgruppe "Raus", the second attempt was made from the south. One 88mm anti-aircraft gun (Flak-36/37) was withdrawn from the main force of the 6th Armoured Division from the vicinity of Raseiniai and transported to the blockaded site. Subsequently, German soldiers camouflaged it with branches and limbs and, under cover of smoke from burning trucks, began to push it into the vicinity of the Soviet tank. They approached to a distance of 500 meters and were about to open fire when the tank crew overtook them and hit the German Flak-36/37 with cannon and machine gun fire. The third attempt to destroy the Soviet tank took place on the night of 24.6-25.6.1941, when a group of 12 engineers under the command of Lieutenant Gebhardt used explosive charges. Their explosion, however, did not penetrate the armour of the tank and destroyed only the right belt. Its crew then occasionally shelled its surroundings with machine guns for the rest of the night.

On the morning of 25 June 1941, E.Raus requested air support in the form of a raid by Junkers (Ju-87B) dive-bombers, but his request was denied. Therefore, he decided to deploy tanks, which were at the disposal of Kampfgruppe "Raus" on the beachhead. This was half of the 65th Armoured Battalion of the 11th Armoured Regiment under the command of Major Schenk, which was armed with PzKpfw-35(t) light tanks. Their task was to manoeuvre at a relatively safe distance from the Soviet tank and distract its crew with their fire from another 88mm anti-aircraft gun (Flak-36/37). This was pushed to the same location as the gun of the same type destroyed the previous day. The German soldiers opened fire and hit the Soviet tank with 7 shells. When they approached it they found that only two 88mm shells had penetrated its armor. After a while, the tank's turret started moving again, so one of the German soldiers threw a hand grenade into the hole at the bottom of the turret. Only its explosion killed the crew, who had only been wounded by the hits so far. E.Raus concludes that the heroism of the Soviet tankers commanded deep respect and their bodies were buried with full military honours.

So much for the memoirs of E.Raus, who is the original author of the story of the Soviet heavy tank battle. A comparison of his version with the previous post shows that over the years this story has been taken up in books and articles by more and more authors who have let their imaginations run wild and added details that E.Raus does not mention at all to enhance the effect. If we skip these details and talk about the overall picture, E.Raus's original narrative shows that the Soviet tank did not blockade the entire 6th Panzer Division for two days, but only blockaded a smaller part of it in the form of Kampfgruppe "Raus" for 24 hours. This, of course, does not detract from the bravery of its crew, which is unquestionable.

However, E.Raus's memoirs must also be approached critically and one must reflect on how accurate they are. Compared to the sources mentioned in the previous post (the publications Pelta on KV1/2, Tankograd KV2), the biggest question mark is the fact that, in contrast, E.Raus repeatedly refers to the Soviet heavy tank as KV-1. In order to make the most realistic reconstruction of this story and to find out what kind of tank it actually was, it will be necessary to compare E.Raus's memories with those of other memoirs and with contemporary documents.

I have managed to find a quote from one document that relates directly to this battle. It is the War Diary of the 11th Armoured Regiment, in which, under the date 25.6.1941, there is a reference to the events of 24.6-25.6.1941: 'Kampfgruppe "Raus" held the bridgehead firmly and therefore in the afternoon the advance was withdrawn from its formation. It was a reinforced company and staff of the 65th Armoured Battalion, which were coming back from the bridgehead by the road they had originally attacked. They were heading for the crossroads to the northeast of Raseiniai. In the meantime, the road to the Kampfgruppe "Raus" bridgehead had been blocked by a Soviet heavy tank, cutting off communication with it throughout the afternoon and night. A battery of 88mm antiaircraft guns was sent to destroy the tank, but it was not successful, nor was a battery of 105mm howitzers, whose fire was directed by a forward artillery observer. An attempt by the engineers to destroy the tank with explosive charges also failed. It was not possible to get close to the tank because of heavy machine gun fire". At this point the description of the battle ends and the following is just a note that the tank was immobile and its crew fought until the ammunition was exhausted.

The type of Soviet heavy tank is not mentioned in this document, and the description of the battle also only partially corresponds to E.Raus's recollections. I have only been able to find one source to compare his recollections with those of other memoirists. It is a Russian-language translation of an older article from a Lithuanian newspaper that was published while the Soviet Union was still in existence. This article talked about the exhumation of Soviet tankers who had fallen at the beginning of the war and whose remains were transferred to a military cemetery. The article was based on the recollections of local memorials - residents of the village of Dainiai, located on the Raseiniai-Siluva road, approximately 5 kilometres north-east of Raseiniai. According to their story, in the evening of the second day of the war (23.6.1941) a Soviet heavy tank appeared on the road behind the village. It did not move from the spot because its engine was not working and without any signs of life it remained standing on the road all night. The next day (24.6.1941) a German truck approached in the direction of Raseiniai. Then the tank came to life and with a cannon shot destroyed this car. Later, locals found four charred bodies next to the charred wreckage.

Two German reconnaissance armoured vehicles then appeared on the road, at which the Soviet tank opened fire and hit them as well. The German soldiers then brought up two guns and attempted to disarm the tank. However, they did not even have time to prepare one of them to fire when the Soviet tankers spotted it and destroyed it with an accurate shot. In the ensuing firefight, the Soviet tank was hit on the observation sight and silenced. The German soldiers then brought in the locals, who pulled 6 fallen Soviet tankers from the hit machine. The soldiers took away the documents they were carrying and left the civilians to bury the bodies of the fallen behind the roadside near the tank.

In 1965, local memorials marked the grave site and the remains of the Soviet tankers were exhumed and transferred to the military cemetery in Raseiniai. Based on personal belongings, an identification attempt was made. An aluminum spoon with an engraved name - Smirnov V.A. - was found near one of the fallen tankers. For another tankman a similar spoon with the initials of his name - Sh.N.A. was found. An important find was a Komsomol identity card, from which only the first page was partially legible. On it the last digits of the registration number - ...1573 were visible and also a part of the holder's name - Jeršov Pav... The last and the most legible document turned out to be a voucher for the surrender of an internal travel document, which read - "passport series LU 289759, issued on 8.10.1935 by the Pskov militia detachment in the name of Yershov, Pavol Yegorovich, passport returned on 11.2.1940".

This is all the information I could find in connection with E.Raus's story about the Soviet heavy tank battle on 24.6-25.6.1941 near Raseiniai. As it follows from their comparison, both the contemporary document and the memories of local memoirs differ in some details from those of E.Raus. However, this is quite understandable, because the author wrote this story in American captivity after the end of the Second World War, even only on the basis of his own memories and with a gap of almost 10 years. In addition to the factor of the natural forgetting of human memory, the personality of each author and his or her tendency to subjective perception of events certainly played a role. (These factors, of course, also influenced local memoirists and, in turn, contemporary reporting may have been influenced by the incompleteness of the information gathered in a combat situation). However, these statements do not change the fact that the available sources do not allow us to determine unequivocally whether in the case of the Soviet heavy tank it was a KV-1 or KV-2 type.

In favour of the version that it was a KV-1 machine speak not only the memories of E.Raus, but also the commemorative marking on the grave of the fallen Soviet tankers, which is located in the military cemetery in Raseiniai (see photos 1 and 2). The number of crew members (6 tankers as opposed to 5 in the case of KV-1) speaks in favour of the version that it was a KV-2 machine. This version is also confirmed by the published photographs, which show a KV-2 tank with similar damages to those mentioned by E.Raus. However, in the case of the photographs, it cannot be ruled out that this is a completely different KV-2 machine, which merely suffered similar damage to the Soviet heavy tank described. The photographs of this KV-2 may have been attached to the whole story by some of the historians just for illustration and then passed on as "fact". While I personally lean towards the latter version, we will have to wait for a definitive answer, as only a professional historian with access to archival documents and photos of the 6th Armored Division would be able to answer this question definitively.

The mystery of "KV-2 near Raseiniai" seems to be solved for good. The respected Russian author Maxim Kolomets, in his book Heavy Tank KV-2 on page 68, states that thanks to the Lithuanian historian Arvidas Zhardinskas he had the opportunity to speak to an eyewitness of the said battle. That testimony and Kolomiec's research have confirmed 100% that the tank that held up the advance of the 6th Panzer Division at Raseiniai (Lithuania) for over a day in June 1941 was of the KV-1 type and not the KV-2 type.

Hello. I'm new here and I'm very interested in this whole topic about KB-1 and KB-2 tanks.

107mm ZiС-6
122mm У-11
76mm С-54 - (according to me, in the mass produced KB-1 this type of barrel was 76mm ZiС-5.)

thank you in advance for the answer.

Prototyp kanóna ZiS-6 (F42) bol testovaný v tanku KV-2 v máji 1941. Predpokladala sa jeho zástavba v projekte tanku KV-5 (a KV-4), ale nakoniec bol ďalší vývoj zastavený v roku 1943.

122 mm U-11 - viď KV-9.

Čo sa týka S-54 - bola testovaná v KV-1 a mohla zvýšiť jeho bojovú hodnotu (rovnako aj KV-1S), jej zástavba bola jednoduchá a mohla sa spraviť aj v poľných opravovniach, ale nakoniec sa do KV nepoužívala (nedostatok vhodného druhu munície).

u KV-2 jsem narazil na menší problém. Na tento tank se montovaly dva druhy věží - vyšší MT-1 (šikmý čelní pancíř, lomený zadní pancíř, tři stupačky na boku) a nižší MT-2 (kolmý čelní pancíř, rovný zadní pancíř, dvě stupačky na boku, třetí na střeše jako madlo). V různých zdrojích jsem ale narazil jen na jeden údaj o celkové výšce vozidla (3250 mm). Nevíte někdo, jestli se jedná o vyšší nebo o nižší verzi ?

Dear colleague,
there are several studies on this topic on Russian-language servers. From one of them I took the liberty to use the accompanying pictures.
