"Description for the map of knocked out German tanks in the vicinity of Volkovyshki

20 tanks were discovered on both sides of the road and on the road itself. There is a PzV tank on the western outskirts and a SU-75 SPG on the PzIII chassis on the south-eastern outskirts. On this highway to Verzhebolovo, there is a PzIV tank and an APC shortly before lake Poyeznory.  There are two tanks near Greater Shelva: one PzV and one PzIV.

Most tanks are knocked out by artillery fire, and only 2 were destroyed by aircraft.

There are many small craters from bombs on the battlefield, which suggests that the German tanks were dispersed by bombings. Most tanks on the battlefield burned up. Three tanks were restored and passed off to other units. Another fully functional PzV tank was found stuck in a swamp.

According to data obtained by reconnaissance, it was established that a significant amount of knocked out tanks was evacuated. This can be determined by tracks where the tanks stopped and were later hauled off.

A table of examined tanks follows:

24NoneAPCSouth-westDestroyed by artillery.
25NonePzVINorthDestroyed by artillery, penetration of the side and broken tracks.
26NonePzVNorthDestroyed by artillery, penetration of the side.

The table has two mistakes in it. One is that a Hummel is identified as a Panther variant, and the other is that tanks #10 and #11 (tactical numbers A22 and A03) are incorrectly identified as PzIVs instead of Tigers. They are correctly identified on the map.
