Tank Tows Army Platoon on Skis (Mar, 1938)
Tank Tows Army Platoon on Skis
Sliding over the snow on skis, a platoon of soldiers was towed by a tank in recent winter maneuvers of the Russian army. With their rifles slung on straps over their shoulders, the infantrymen grasped ropes trailing from the rear of the tank, as shown in the photograph. The maneuver is expected to speed up troop movements.
