70th Anniversary of Tanker's Day

70 years ago, on September 8th, 1946, elements of the 4th Guards Kantemirovka Tank Division drove across Red Square in the first Tanker's Day parade.

In the documentary footage of the parade, all mentions of Stalin were edited out, including the name of the IS-3 tank, but interestingly enough, not the name "Stalingrad".
