Moving right along after parts 1 (Oarai) and 2 (Gloriana and Saunders) it’s time to meet the tanks of Pravda High School.

T-34s

The bulk of the Pravda tanks are T-34s as you might expect. This T-34/85s was on display at Yekaterinburg:

Bovington also had an 85:

This is what Katyusha was driving, and here she is about to outline her brilliant* plans to her team:

Pravda also had a number of T34/76s, but the closest I got to that was this rear view of one that the Finns captured from the Soviets, and presumably made some alterations to:

IS-2

One of the rarer tanks in the Pravda collection is the IS-2 commanded by Nonna when Katyusha needs a sniper. I’m not convinced that this photo from Yekaterinburg is an IS-2, but if it isn’t then it’s closely related.

EDIT: Courtesy of Discordia and Jaehaerys Brunestud on Twitter, yes, this is an IS-2:

Certainly the profiles are very similar:

The last of the significant Pravda tanks is this KV-2

And here it is bringing up the rear when we first see Pravda’s tanks:

And that’s Pravda done. Next up: Kuromorimine
