The Russian infantry have the good weapons, there are especially many anti-tank facilities: sometimes it looks like every infantryman have an anti-tank rifle or an anti-tank gun. The Russians very skilfully establish these weapons, and it seems like there are no place without ones.

         If you can add any data about most effective AT-experts, please E-mail me. This list of infantry antitank experts is incompleted, because in Soviet army almost weren't statistics about personal victories. In many cases I was forced to use a fragmental sources, so some scores may be actually bigger.
         This is the first ATR aces rating in the internet. Before the establishment of my own domen wio.ru, this site grew up at the free hostings (geocities.com, then boom.ru).
