  1. https://cloud.mail.ru/public/9dEX/djuwzbp4V/_tmp/Soldat und Technik/ Issues of Soldat und Technik from 1988, 89, 90 and most of 91 were photographed from cover to cover, and uploaded - sometimes doubles were deleted and files were renamed properly, sometimes not https://cloud.mail.ru/public/9dEX/djuwzbp4V/Royal Tank Corps Journal/ two issues of Royal Corps Tank Journal from 1937 also, couple of Russian books were uploaded into books folder - 5 volumes on GABTU 1929(1918 or 19 actually)-1953, book on T-64's designer A. Morozov, textbook on tank design, and Ger
  2. Timoney was also involved unfortunately, it was covered in early 00s Jane's International Defense Review, like 2000-2002, and Russian State Library does not have those. more pics https://cloud.mail.ru/public/2uHW/4ANwUXJGo/FCS/FCS 8x8 Pegasus/

  4. from physical version of Mittler Report issue on KF41 Lynx (low-res scans are posted on htka.hu forum) So, I've made couple of comparisons, to the best of my ability
  5. more photos or same but in highrez of Lynx from Brave Warrior 2020 https://www.origo.hu/itthon/galeria/20200924-brave-warrior-hadgyakorlat-2020.html and about a dozen photos - there https://facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2634106493468122&id=1441732669372183 such as also this https://facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3557867297598775 and from the same FB account - 15 more photos, such as: https://facebook.com/story.php?story_fbi
  6. ...Lynx appears next to Bradley, and they couldn't film from some better angles or closer so, here's KF41 close to one of them M113 versions instead ... another photo https://kuruc.info/r/2/218395/
  7. Are there any photos or drawings/diagrams of turret's interior? Or at least numbers - I'm interested in where exactly in the vehicle was ammunition storage, and its capacity immediately available for gun or available without manual reloading, especially since Marder-2's ammo storage was quoted as 110+177 35mm rounds, which for example substantially exceeds CV-9035's 35+35rds (IIRC), in fact it exceeds pretty much every other IFV with similarly large caliber autocannon I can think off the top of my head, except may be K21 (if automatic feeding mechanism to replenish initia
  8. https://cloud.mail.ru/public/9dEX/djuwzbp4V/_tmp/ all issues (stored at RSL) of Jane's Defense Weekly vol.13 and 14, covering 1990, were photographed from cover to cover, along with 16 issues from vol.15 (1991). all issues of Jane's Soviet Intelligence Review stored at RSL, from 1989 and 1990, were photographed. Soviet magazine (in Russian) Зарубежная Военная Техника. Серия VII. Оптика в военной технике /"Foreign military equipment. Series VII. Optics in military equipment"/ - compilation of articles from various western magazines, brochures, patents - was pho
  9. It's from late April, link to Twitter post with more photos was posted on page 86 of this thread
  10. T-15 and T-14 are visible in footage from UVZ's Workshop 130 in latest TV Zvezda's Voennaya Priemka episode mostly dedicated to (spreading myths about) BMPT T-15:
  11. all IDR issues stored at RSL are photographed. This folder contains almost 100 Gb, probably some 70k photos - including about 30k duplicates. Once I delete those, and rename rest, I'll visit RSL for IDR issues once again - to reshoot those photos which turned blurry and unreadable, I expect to find at least couple of hundred of those.
  12. from this article https://m.asiatime.co.kr/news/newsview.php?ncode=1065578054265027 6Mpix 3Mb image w/ 4 renders of K2PL:

  15. https://cloud.mail.ru/public/4HFz/ramj5wq6b articles from Czech magazines (ATM, Military Revue, Historie a Plastikove Modelarstvi, Nase Vojsko, etc) on various, usually unfinished, military projects they developed during Cold War. Mostly in Czech, sometimes with screenshots of Google Translate to English https://cloud.mail.ru/public/4zsb/5nr7FEi44 those, and some other, Czech magazines
  16. IMO it's would be very reassuring to know for a fact that in 2000s Russian Army and military-industrial complex have departed from that thing happening with Soviet Army and Soviet MIC every once in a while - with T-64, T-80, BMP-3, and presumably other things too, which all had quite a bit of problems with reliability for couple of years before and after adoption, but still were accepted by what looks like lowering standards and believing promises, and/or been very accurate about how to make a report which "smells like a rose".
  17. I doubt BTR-90 might be called satisfactory at any year of its development, one could just look at its potential adversaries (and wonder how exactly it was pitched to back than Soviet Army) - starting all the way back in mid80s when Wehrtechnik (1985-02, 1988-08) and International Defense Review (1988-10) were publishing articles on Western next generation wheeled AFV development - namely West German EXF and Daimler Benz proposal of family of vehicles based on it, including such things as 32t APC. (while research phase which started in mid80s have led Soviets to next generation 21t
  18. https://books.google.ru/books?uid=115590142161999487031&as_coll=1007&source=gbs_lp_bookshelf_list some could be available there (some from USA IP adress only, so VPN might be required), I've spent quite some time back in 2017-2018, making requests to GoogleBiooks to show them and other magazines in full view instead of snippet view - more was mentioned in post on p.11 of this thread or there https://cloud.mail.ru/public/DF26/vHThkrzpC/Armor/ as separate jpeg files in appropriate folders, though not for long now - I'll delete that as soon as I'll need more space
  19. Best I could find so far - unless I'm mistaken - it seems like two pipes are visible through those two holes
