Quality of this equipment and how it was used/cared for/tracked is the different story, but soldiers going into offensive with one rifle for 3 persons is a legend. Such things could happen in November/December 1941 when Germans were 40 miles from Moscow...... and a lot of the Moscow male population was organized in militia... But later on..... That is bull.
Your proabably right, and they didn't shoot people for retreating either.
