That's what I thought.
The Soviet tank had been retreating until it got blocked and bogged close to a lake or river.This one would make for a good contest: come up with the best story to explain why three Germans are climbing on a KV-1..........naked LOL

3 things pop at me in this picture:J. Stalin inspects a new SU-152, 1943.
Someone, hint, hint, made a mighty fine menu screen mod for RT using a colorized version of this photo. For some reason it's not in the mod warehouse so if you want it you can grab it here:The T-34 tank driver Mikhail Smirnov after a victorious battle with german forces near the village of Lomonosov Gostilitsy, Jan. 17 1944. Smirnov was killed in action six months later in the battle for the city of Dvinsk, today known as Daugavspils, Latvia.
It also seems that the tree next to it has unsuccessfully tried to stop an AP round. I guess trees in real life are not as unstoppable as in CM...The third one appears to be shot up and possibly burned out.
