3611 SOVIET TANK HUNTERS WITH DOGS
Due to lack of efficient anti-tank weapons in 1941/42, the Soviet Army used 60.000 special trained dogs as explosive carriers. These animals carried 2-4kg of explosives which detonated in contact with metal and were trained to run under enemy tanks. More than 300 German tanks were destroyed by those special troops. With the availability of better anti-tank armament, these troops were disbanded in 1943.
