   And again, tankoff posted patents for Epokha turret on otvaga. First part, 2nd, 3rd (pictures of APGB, MG mount and few more). Stolen and translated for capitalists to understand, also will save here for future use.

 

   From here - armor plates used in Epokha

6.2, 20, 40 and 50 mm thick plates were used, looks like.

In the Epokha, at least two versions of the APGB gun are used. 2A94 is placed on the B-19.
57-mm APGB gun (automatic grenade ballistic gun, GRAU index 2A92, designation KBP TKB-1006).

   Also, 2A92 maybe not an oversized AGL.

   Remote detonation control equipment B-15e01 (TKB-1017, R&D "Epokha-AUDP"). On the “Epokha”, if I am not mistaken, the radio control of the detonation is the “Antenna RU” and probably has a measuring instrument for the initial velocity of the projectile - “DINS Block” (D - possibly Doppler or sensor).

   It can also be assumed that the TKB-1032E high-explosive fragmentation shell (see the picture in the first post) is a projectile with remote detonation, perhaps E is electronic?

   Confirmation of radio control fuze.

Hello, residents of Sturgeon's House!

Information wants to be free, and I want to share with you my humble collection of manuals about Soviet/post-Soviet armor. T-44/T-55/T-62/T-72, all in Russian, but you can find random US manual or even French manuals on Saint-Chamond.

Enjoy!

Small teaser

I've concluded that with my current pace of "processing" my photos of pages from some military-related magazines and books from and usually on 1950s-2010s, stored at Russian State Library, it would take months or years until finally done, 
so I've decided instead to upload it asap, "as is", with most uploaded by now, and few (in subfolders which would be available via the same link) in following couple of days.

Awesome. Did you upload all photographs you took from the 1974 edition of Jahrbuch der Wehrtechnik or have you photographed more of them and will upload them later?

Yes. IIRC all photos of pages from all books are uploaded.

 

Still, I hope to visit RSL as soon as it opens again, so may be you can name particular remaining articles or page numbers in this book, which should be photographed first?

 

/...I do hope, eventually, to revisit all those books and magazines in order to make photos of all pages from cover to cover, but that seems like at least a couple years worth of weekends task, and it seems more important now to make photos of covers and table-of-contents with occasional articles which catch my attention. But, as I implied, requests are possible.

 

btw, AFAIK both GoogleBooks and Hathitrust 

have volumes 1-16 of Jahrbuch der Wehrtechnik scanned almost decade ago, but they would not make those available in full view untill, like, 2060s - early 2090s. Well, unless someone finds copyright holder and convinces it to give permission to show it's publications in full view before copyright expires (like with Life, Popular Mechanics, and some other magazines).

Internet Archive's Online Library could provide something much earlier, with their digital lending model, but they scan things on their own, so they are much smaller than either of first two, IIRC smth like 15 to 30 times when compared by total number of digitized books, and their digitization efforts are also seem to be much slower./

In the eight edition (the 1974 one) of the Jahrbuch der Wehrtechnik you photographed a few exceprts from an article about thermal imaging technology and applications. It starts at page 86 and ends at page 97. To me that is very interesting, because I previously assumed that the Leopard 2AV/US Common Modules lead to the introduction of thermal images in West-German combat vehicles. That the R Z501 and RZ 502 thermal imagers existed and the exact differences between PZNG and NZG 200 were unknown to me - Krapke incorrectly calls them just "image intensifiers" (though Krapke doesn't really pay much attention to everything before the Leopard 2AV). I have found no explanation what is meant by the "Gate-Viewing-Technologie" avialable to the NZG 200.

 

I will post about some of the interesting bits from the articles in the Leopard 2 topic soon.

 

There is also an article in the Jahrbuch der Wehrtechnik 1974 about "mobile military computers" (starting at page 164). I wonder if this includes informations on the FCS computers used at that time.

During following six-and-a-half weeks I've managed to put all of those images into folders, rotate them, and rename properly.

 

/with Moscow lifting some of COVID-related restrictions, I hope to visit RSL either during this weekend, or next one.

Since they've put a limit on number of books one can request during his visit, making photos of some books from cover to cover seems now like a preferable way to spend time there./
