Hi all.

A couple of updates in my Soviet Vehicles of WWII galleries.

Check them out at: rathgeb.smugmug.com


One of them is an early T-60 (spoked wheels):




Then, first pic in the new gallery "Artillery (Soviet photos)". While the photos in the present "Artillery" gallery are german pics of destroyed and captured vehicles, I will post here Soviet Propaganda or Press photos. A couple more are on their way to me. Here a propaganda photo on postcard of two camouflaged T-20 Komsomolets armoured tractors used as light armoured carriers.




The second new gallery is "Artillery (Self Propelled)". The first photo is a pic of a destroyed SU-122 self propelled howitzer. Not very sharp, but my first one. A second (much better) photo of a SU-122 is on the way to me.




Cheers,
Peter

The SU-122 is a rare beast. Very interesting.

I really like the stuff you post. And - for some reason I don't understand - photos of SU-122s are very scarce.

Yours,

Right, James... I have bought one more SU-122 photo which I should soon receive.

Cheers,

Hi
It's not "early" T-60. It's 1942 production tank of Factory #264 (Krasnoarmeisk, suburb of Stalingrad).
