||Gazette No 14 -
||Gazette packed solid with
information (ads on inside covers of Gazette only, no "fillers"); focuses
on WWII and Post-War Soviet and Eastern Bloc vehicles.
Tankograd Publishing specialise in titles mainly relating
to Soviet and Eastern Bloc WWII and post-war vehicles.
The Tankograd Gazette is a regular quarterly publication.
The magazine comprises 42 pages plus soft cardboard covers in an A4 centre-stapled
format. It is printed on high quality glossy paper and includes
plenty of colour pictures.
Each issue is an excellent reference source in its own right. There is
always a good mix of photos of vehicles in service and
in museums, as well as relevant technical drawings. The text is all in English.
This slim magazine is packed with detail and inspiration
from often unexpected quarters, and issue number 14 is no exception. Contents
this quarter include:
T-55 Kangaroo - an Israeli troop-carrier
adaptation of the T-55 Tank. This is a great feature article with 22
Light SU Regiment Organisation - Autumn 1944.
This comprises a two-page organisation diagram.
ZSU-37 Air Defence Vehicle
T-37 and T-38 Light Amphibious Tanks. Another
big Feature Article with over 20 photos plus scale drawings of four
T-64A Model 1979/1980 Main Battle Tank. Colour
photos, text and a handy T-64 Identification Guide.
B-29 "Povozke" Artillery Trailer.
The Original T-34 - a light tank prototype that
has no relationship with it more famous namesake!
T-26 in Spain, including some interesting
PRMG-5 Instrument Landing System, based on a
vehicle that looks like a swollen Kombi van!
One photo and a description of a KV-2 turret
mounted on an armoured train.
Twelve photos from the Darlovo military vehicle
meeting in Poland.
Tankograd Gazette #14 will be relevant to modellers
and historians with an interest in Soviet vehicles of all eras.
