Demya Belitsky was a Soviet tank driver during World War III. He was assigned to a T-34/85 under Konstantin Morozov in December 1951.[1]

They were first assigned a T-34/85, a tank that had been produced in 1943. Despite his protests that the tank was outdated and likely to be destroyed, Morozov knew he'd be overruled by the higher ups.[2] They were then assigned to the regiment of Major Kliment Todorsky, and joined a drive on Paderborn.[3]

They survived the drive, and, against all odds, the whole tank crew grew rather fond of their old tank.[4] As March gave way to April, Paderborn was still in American hands. Morozov and his crew were once again part of a drive on the town, under the command of Captain Lezkov. After a kilometer and a half, a bazooka round hit the engine compartment, crippling the tank. The crew evacuated safely, and there were no further attacks.[5]

When the time came for a new tank, Morozov flatly refused to be assigned another T-34. After some wrangling, Morozov insured his crew were given a T-54.[6] They then joined their new regiment, commanded by Major Genrikh Zhuk, in Dassel.[7]
