Hah, Panzerfaust can easily destroy t-34. maybe not from the front, the sides, though. btw if i can see, there's one destroyed tank already. Finnish hiding in the back of the tower?

Glad you like it.

These antitank weapons came available for Finnish troops in the last minute, and you're partly correct. Against the frontal (and sloped) armour of T34/85, Panzerfaust was pretty useless (as I've read from several accounts). Same goes for ISU-152 and IS-tanks that the Finns faced in the summer 1944. However armour is slightly weaker on the sides and the rear, where an experienced soldier would like to score a hit. Or you just sit tight and let it go. Luckily there were also other (better) AT weapons available.

Niin, hankin kirjan joka kertoi tuon elokuvan ja todellisuuden suhteesta. Tuo tapahtui todellisuudessakin. Kouluttaja oli juuri selittänyt että 'tämä irti, panos sisään, kierretään kiinni, tähtäin ylös, varmistin pois, tästä tähdätään, ja tästä laukastaan ja varokaa persliekkiä, se tappaa', ja tämän jälkeen paikalle oli saapunut vielä muitakin kuuntelijoita jotka olivat pyytäneet uusintademonstraatiota, jolloin väsynyt kouluttaja oli antanu lyhyen version; 'tähtäin ylös, tähtäys ja laukaus'... maksoi ainakin sen yhden pioneerikersantin hengen (sen tiedot löytyy Sota-arkiston tietokannasta, en muista nimeä nyt) joka ei siis tienny että aseesta purkautuu takaa aikasmoinen lieska.
