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.

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.

Excellent! Please tell me if you need some server-space for the PDF etc.

The manual is now on-line

The manual (in plain and simple Finnish) can now be found here.

Thank you Martti!
