The magazine under review is Polygon 2 -2000, published by Polygon 125413, Moscow, Russia.

Published in Russian with a few captions in English, it is printed in A4 portrait format and on very good quality paper and has 50 pages per edition.

The contents for this copy are as follows:

  • Evaluation of the M-26 and M-46 Heavy Tank and Centurion Tank captured in Korea. Original black and white photographs and cross sectional drawings of the layout with armour thickness and angles of plate.

  • An article about a German prototype PzKpfw 10 super tank with curved armour.

  • An article about the S-1 aircraft, original photos, scale plans and cross sectional drawings.

  • The Leningrad Anti tank gun, original photographs.

  • An article: I have no idea what it is about as it has no English captions.

  • An article on the T34 track story, original photographs and recovered examples from battlefield and 1-10 scale drawings.

  • An article about German Signal Pistols and grenades with sectional drawings.


C o n c l u s i o n


This magazine has limited appeal unless you are highly interested in Russia equipment. The quality of the photographs is very good and that applies to the scale / cross sectional drawings.

The information contained in the captions is only a hint to what the text would be able to convey if it were printed in English.

With the advent of on-line ordering, book dealers have access to world markets. The publishers of magazines / books like this must grasp the nettle and print in English, as it is the language of researchers, historians and model makers worldwide.

I obtained mine from NKR models Australia. Ian Sadler

I recommend it to those who have sufficient interest in one or more of the articles.
