Goofs During the Battle of Kursk (July 1943), several of the German tanks are actually Russian T-55's, T-62's, and even a few IS-2's. Such tanks would not have been employed by the Wehrmacht (even though they did field a number of captured T-34's in the battle), especially as they had not been invented yet. See more »
