T-26 manuals from 1951 / 1952

Postby Martti Kujansuu » Mon Oct 15, 2007 3:27 pm

Hello!

Quite an amazing this Internet thing. I was browsing throught the new Military Archives of Finland document catalogs and found a reference to Finnish T-26 manuals made in 1951 and 1952.

http://www.narc.fi/tmplobs/baaSutiyb.pdf

T-26, maintenance manual. Printed in 1951.

Tank guns and optics in T-26. Printed in 1952.


Couldn't they just use the old manuals from the 1940s? Nevertheless I'm going to the Military Archives probably in near future so would you like to see what the manuals are all about?

I don't think that the Soviets gave us the manuals when we captured their tanks... :D

I got the "Tank guns and optics in T-26" manual. I'll probably get it through OCR and then post it here as a PDF. Here's some examples.
