The Black Baron's Random Fact of the Unspecified Time Period - #30

During World War II, the Soviet military assembled a unit of, so-called, "anti-tank dogs", who were trained to be used to destroy tanks, basically they had explosives strapped to them and they were made to dive under the enemy tanks setting off the explosives...

This plan, however, was doomed to failure because Russian tanks had been used for the training which caused the dogs to attack them instead of the German Panzers or the dogs would become frightened and head back to their handlers, triggering the explosives when they dove back into the Soviet trenches..
