87 Guards Mortar Regiment of the Odessa Regiment. March 11, 1945 2 mortar vehicles were hit.
Received an order to repair the machines. Despite heavy German fire, he repaired the cars within 10 hours. Both mortar launchers unleashed their mortar rounds on the Germans. Combat operations of the 87th Guards Mortar Regiment south of Kharkov on March 1-30, 1943. In the battles for Kharkov in February-March 1943, the troops of the Red Army actively used multiple launch rocket systems, or as the fighters themselves called them - "Katyushas".
You can hear a variety of opinions about the effectiveness of these systems, one thing is clear that in order to achieve a good result from their use, a significant number of installations per 1 km of the front was required. In the battles south of Kharkov during the described period, there was not and could not be such a required number, most of the guards mortar regiments used their divisions in a separate way, covering divisions, or directions [i] in different parts of the front.It would be all the more interesting, using the example of one Guards mortar regiment, to consider in detail how rocket artillery was used. One of these regiments that came into the field of view of my research was the 87th Guards Mortar Regiment, its use was limited to the use of individual Katyusha divisions on a very long territory occupied by the troops of the 15th Rifle Corps of the 6th Army of the South-Western front and the 3rd Panzer Army of the Voronezh Front.
