Assignment
(1) Possibly 405 Tank Regiment
(2) The 131st Mechanized Division is also indicated as having the 489, 743 Motorized Rifles Regiments.
      (According to the book by Kalinin, commander this division).
(3) 219th Mechanized Division is also indicated as having the 708, 709, 710 Motorized Rifles Regiments.
      (According to the book by Krivoshein, commander of the 25th Mechanized Corps).
As the Red Army did not have enough motor vehicles, the name "motorized" was merely a paper designation.
In fact, some Motorized Rifle Divisions were basically Rifle Divisions owing to this lack of trucks.
