Olisiko tuosta tarkempaa informaatiota? Soloninin mukaan mekanisoituja armeijakuntia oli tosiaan rakenteilla, mutta rajan tuntumassa olevat yksiköt olivat täysin toimintakuntoisia. Sivulta http://www.solonin.org/en/book_june22/17:Kesällä 1941 Puna-armeijan motorisoidut armeijat olivat tekemässä organisaatiouudistusta ja odottamassa uusia tankkeja/kuljetuskalustoa.
Solonin kirjoitti:The last pre-war "Summary of condition and amount of combat vehicles as of June 1, 1941" (Central Archives of the Ministry of Defence, f.38, op.11353, 924, 135-138, 909, 2-18) tells us that there were 12,782 tanks in the ranks of five western frontier districts (without the outdated T-27 tankettes removed from operational use), of which 10,540 tanks were "suitable to be used as intended" (categories 1 and 2), which makes 82.5% of the whole tank park. Among them, 5465 tanks belonged to the Kiev special military district (the future South-Western front), with 4788 units in the 1st and 2nd categories (87.6 %).
These figures, however, do not describe the technical condition of the tanks which directly belonged to the mechcorps of the Kiev special military district. The fact is that there were more tanks in the district than in the mechcorps. The eight (22nd, 15th, 4th, 8th, 16th, 9th, 19th, 24th) mechcorps of the Kiev special military district had "only" 4808 tanks of the total 5465. Six hundred more tanks belonged to scout battalions of rifle divisions, tank regiments of cavalry divisions, training centers, repair bases and depots. We can reliably suppose that all (or almost all) new tanks went to the mechcorps rather than to rifle divisions. This means that the percent of the mechcorps tanks "suitable to be used as intended" was higher than the district average.
Solonin kirjoitti:The lack of 50% of organic means of transport mentioned by Vladimirsky was not a threat, either. The truth is that the "staff numbers" specified in Stalin's preparation plans for the Great War were huge. So, a howitzer regiment (36 howitzers) of a Red Army rifle regiment was to have 73 tractors, 90 trucks and 3 passenger cars according to the troop list of April, 1941. The fact that the number of tractors exceeds the number of guns does not prove the excessive weight of artillery systems. A 122-mm howitzer weighed about 2.5 tons, a 152-mm howitzer – 4.2 tons, and any of them could easily be towed by a single tractor.
