Probably one of the best know photos of Operation Barbarossa showing an attack of Panzerwaffe units across open fields. In the foreground is a Sd.Kfz. 253 armored command vehicle, as a leading command post of a tank unit composed of Pz.Kpfw. II's and III's supported by infantry hidden in their Sd.Kfz. 251s.
