    Also wasn't "black death" also supposed to be the nickname of the Il-2.
    So unless the naval troops spread their arms and made aeroplane noises while advancing I see no reason to confuse the two.

    You have a point but the sea demons or devils whatever I have read from a piece out of a germans diary. The naval infantry also had a reputation that is backed up, troubles they had with them in [*******#000000]Sevastopol[/COLOR] is one of many examples.

    "Teufelskerle" (the devil's own guys) is an old fashioned expression for extremely brave/almost suicidal people which was still in use in WW2 german.
    So it may have been this.

    Naw. It was Fritzes and Ivans or Nemtsy and Russisch mostly, so some other easy nicknames. Black death sounds very nice in Russian, but it's mouthful in German.

    Hmm, it was a diary by William Hoffman, but their seemed to be two versions of it one doesn't mention who the men were firing from the grain elevator and some minor other diffrences ? Maybe it is fake.

    That's Ural's concept for the "Typhoon"-class vehicle.

    I never doubted that. I just dislike propaganda names because they actually devalue real stuff, sort of make it less credible. Those men did more than enough, there is absolutely no need for phoney bombastic tales.
