Like Brian said.
Since the Soviet Combat table is a bit less "effective" at causing advances (but not losses!) than the German Table, if you want to achieve big breakthroughs the combination of those two units (with two combat shifts) is a must. Of course a German Panzer will cancel one shift, but Russia is a big country, and those Panzers cannot be everywhere!
Also, given the low movement factors of the Soviet Shock Fronts, this is where the Strategic Reserve counter (Rule 14.12) becoves VERY useful, allowing you to redeploy these units fast, so to hit the Germans on a weak part of the front, together with some Tank Armies.
