Not sure what that is but if it is relevant to your story then by all means :)

Red Steel Glory

 

Here we lay, defeated and exhausted from the German lines, as they roll past us in their Tigers, most of us are either killed, dying, or simply trying to be quiet enough to not be noticed. Our tank was one of the few left untouched and unnoticed. We were as strong as the rest of the Red army, but, after seeing tank after tank being destroyed in front of us, we all broke, too cowardly to move. They pummeled us with AT guns and tanks, and we simply planned on playing dead until either they found us, or til they went past us.As we sat there, sweating in suspense of being found, something, unusual happened. We could hear the slightest noise from outside, and as I peeked through the ports, german soldiers were confused, even a little frightened.

 

Then we saw it. It was a KV-2, alone at the top of the ridge we crested, with our flag blowing in the wind behind it's turret. A trumpet blew across the battlefield, it's sound penetrating every nook and cranny, as a choir followed suit in our national anthem. Suddenly, a wall of T-34's, KV's, and SU's erupted from behind the KV-2 and charged down the ridge, unheeding to the German guns. Inspired, we immediately started the tank, watching the germans run in fear, we put a killing shot into a Tiger, blowing it's turret sky high. As we joined our comrades, the KV-2 rolled up next to us, stopping only just a moment to fire it's massive gun, blowing away a Panzer 4. The commander pops out of the hatch, with red war paint covering his face. "Come along, comrade, and let's give the Krauts a run for their Fascist money!" And so we charged, ever inspired by the glory of that KV-2. 

 

Welp, there's my attempt. (I kinda suck at stories.)
