I've been struggling with this article for most of the evening, but one particularly baffling quote has left me flummoxed. In the 'Northern Wing' section: '... Ago Loorpärg, the commander of an Estonian anti-tank company, firing at it with a captured Soviet 45 mm gun incidentally found in a launched state' [my emphasis]. I think "launched" could mean "already loaded", but as I have also removed half a paragraph of sourced material (see below), I am rather reluctant to remove any more.

In the 'Preceding combat' section I have deleted the latter half of the paragraph as it already appears, almost word for word, in the "Nirva Offensive (15–28 February 1944)" article. There are other parts elsewhere which are also repeated, should they be taken out as well? If so, the article will start to look a bit scrawny.

The repeated information in the Preceding combat section should be replaced with a summary of the Narva Offensive (15-28 February). --Jaan Pärn (talk) 05:11, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
