World War II

The 2nd Tank Corps was a Red Army armoured formation that saw service during World War II on the Eastern Front. The unit had approximately the same size and combat power as a Wehrmacht Panzer Division, and less than a British Armoured Division had during World War II.


The 2nd Tank Corps was formed in April 1942 in Gorky. Its command was accommodated in three chambers in Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin and its units were formed in winter camps around the city.
