Hi all.

I added many new photos to my galleries at:
rathgeb.smugmug.com

Here a few samples:


BT-7 Fast Tank gallery:




T-26 Light Tank gallery:




T-37/T-38 Amphibious Tank gallery - a destroyed/dismantled T-37:




T-35 Heavy Tank gallery - I also found a photo of a T-35 tank with its main turret and three of the auxiliary turrets blown off. Place is near Dubno (Riwne Oblast, Ukraine). Interestingly, I had already bought a photo of the same tank from an other angle, many weeks before:






Artillery gallery - can you help with ID?


First this one (PRCSUART036)?




And this (PRCSUART037)?




Many captured 45mm Anti-Tank Guns:




Is this Stalinets tractor equipped with a non-standard Gas Generator?




German soldiers with a captured Voroshilovets tractor:




PRCSUART043 - which gun is this? It resembles vaguely to a 3" Field Gun M1902, but there are differences...

First one is an F-22 76.2mm. This is the one that the Germans rechambered for there Marders. Second one is a 76.2mm AA gun.

... thanks a lot for contributing.

These were my first guesses, as well, but I was irritated by the form of the gun shield (M1936) together with the wheels (M1939) for the F-22, and by the wheels for the AA gun.

Cheers,
Peter

1st one is the 76.2mm Divisional Gun M1936. Has standard wheels as far as I can see.
2nd is 76.2mm Air Defence Gun M1931
Last is 122mm Howitzer M1909/37 (Krupp)

That is a very rare photo of the RHS of this.
Pity the soldier is standing in front of the engine, as then we could see the injector pump was replaced with 2 magnetos on the gas powered tractor.
This is because a wood gas engine has ignition by sparking plugs, not by diesel high pressure injector pump, so the magnetos on the SG65 were fitted in place of the injector pump.
Diesel engine is compression ignition, wood gas spark ignition.
Note also the correct details of the RHS bulkhead, between the engine and the driver position, see that the wood gas cooling cylinders do not stick out on this side, only the top one is partially visible.
Thank you very much indeed for this picture and all the others you have posted, I very much appreciate them

Best Wishes
Tim Roberts
