Last Saturday, the battle for Stalingrad Tractor Factory were recreated near Przemysl, south-eastern Poland with 160 reenactors taking part. Plenty of machine guns made a great impression, with some powerful pyro effects. The abandoned ruined factory made a terrific place for that event. The weather made a fantastic addition to the scenario with snow, mud changing into frosty sun and back...

Some pics:

Amazing, congratulations to organizer;
it looks gerat, especially last picture.

Actually, who organised it? I would like to join with my group (Infaterie Regiment 31)
next year if possible; it shouldn't be more tham 10 hours of driving from Slovenia.
Was it done as public show or it was ''closed event''.
two more questions; armament regulations?, ammunition supply?
thanks in advance, Bovec1313 (Pavel)
