Looks like these BA-10 armored cars have been abandoned by their crews, maybe due to breakdowns or lack of fuel.
The BA-10 was developed in the 1930s and was similar to the BA-3 and the BA-10 Heavy Armored Cars. Survivors were used as late as 1943 on the Leningrad Front. The BA-10 was armed w/1x45mm main gun mounted in a turret
and carried between 34 to 45 rounds of ammo.

Secondary armament 2x7.62mm DT machine guns w/2079 rounds of ammo one mounted in the hull, and the other was mounted co-axial in the turret. The Germans captured numbers of BA-10s and used them in the anti-partisan role, and were named Panzerspahwagen BAF 203 (r)
