Stranger than Fiction

Back in the day, while playing Red Orchestra, a lot of people were complaining about a very normal looking event: tankers that ran around without vehicles to supplement their team's infantry numbers. Apparently there was enough complaining to leave tankers "anchored" to their vehicles in the sequel. Sadly, this was all too historically accurate. Kris Reid has an excerpt of an all too common situation from reports.

"...I was told that vehicles will not be sent to us within two months. Nevertheless, the Military Councils of the Army and Front do not wish to release the brigade from the Front, hoping to re-form it within the Front.

However, the brigade has already been inactive as a tank unit for a month and a half, and has been used, as I show below, as a spare unit for forming other units, or as infantry, carrying out orders in the front of the 4th Army."
