Default Where was this photo taken?

[SIZE="4"]I recently bought a group of LAH photos from February (maybe March?) 1943 of panzergreniders probably from Sandig's battalion. This photo shows a LAH vehicle overlooking a fairly large Russian city. Does anybody know for sure what city it is? /SIZE]

Since nobody is sure of this location, can anybody offer an educated guess?

Very little to identify, but if it is Feb-March 1943 then it may be the outskirts of Kharkov.

I can see some larger buildings in the back ground, but is this place large enough to be Kharkov? Are there places near Kharkov that are large enough to fit the photo?

sorry towards the end of March snow was melting. LAH was round Karkov Feb/March 1943. Some classic Karkov images towards the middle of March 1943
