Hi all.

I'd like to share with you the newest updates to some of my galleries.

Check them out at rathgeb.smugmug.com!

Here a couple of samples:


A captured BT-5. Any idea what the marking is?




A destroyed T-38 amphibious tank:




Probably a T-30 tank, the non-amphibious version of the T-40. In the detail cutout you will see that the tank does not seem to have the typical trapezoid opening for the screw installation:






Nice photo of a T-28 medium tank with many open hatches:




A captured T-34 with a Lend-Lease Matilda in the background:




ISU-152 self-propelled guns, at Victory Parade in Kiev, 01.05.1945:

In fact, it's T-40 without swimming devices. 25 produced in august 1941.
This tank from 1 Tank brigade, knocked-out in combat near Lipovka. 4 T-40 was knocked-out in this combat, germans lost some anti-tank and field artillery.

From the end of august 1941 all T-40 was renamed on the factory #37 as a T-30, but, in fact, production of real T-30 with new hull started in october only.
