I hope the city of Stalingrad itself will be accurate on the map ?
Your our "Russian" expert uzbek2012.
Have a look at this early alpha Stalingrad. What do you think about it?
The Soviet expert is previously satisfied but the great Volga river should be wider !

Bridges in Stalingrad !!! ??? If I remember, there were no bridges in Stalingrad. Just docks to cross the Volga.
Bridge over the Volga — it was necessary for the transfer of trains from Astrakhan to the right Bank
A whole heroic epic was formed when building a bridge over the Volga — it was necessary for the transfer of trains from Astrakhan to the right Bank. There was no time, money, or technical capability to build an ordinary bridge. We decided to create a floating bridge crossing on barges. We made calculations. There were not enough barges to attach side to side. Then they decided to build a Wake column of barges and a "ribbon crossing"on it.
This was done for the first time in our country. But the war forces you to take any risk-the troops must be provided, and the Supreme ordered Stalingrad to be held at all costs. And on the bridge should not take place in passenger carriages and heavy wagons with ammunition and fuel tanks.
