They included 464 thousand people, 1,500 tanks and self-propelled guns, 12,700 guns and mortars, 2,100 rocket launchers. Considering the experience of taking large cities, for the battles in the city, assault squads were created as part of rifle battalions or companies reinforced with tanks, artillery and sappers.
