Pictures have emerged showing how Stalin's 'canine killers' were deployed in the Second World War against Nazi tanks.

The kamikaze dogs were fitted with explosives and taught to carry them to tanks, armoured vehicles and other targets.

The use of these dogs in battle was first approved in 1924 and continued into the 1990swith special training to ensure they ran to their deaths in front of enemy tanks.
