Russo-Balts.
Permalink   


I just did an design essay for art class about the Russo-Balt company, and I though I might share some pictures and Info.

1. Russo-Balt type C, the car that lay underneath the Russo-Balt armoured car.
2. Russo-Balt type-T, best used (if ever) as Flak as well as transport.
3. Russo-Balt type-M conversion. Loving the hearse.
4. Russo-Balt Type C conversion. This one took a whole load of editing to cut-up and scale down. The original was huge!
5. Definately my favourite. A conveted C 24 30 series 4. Ambulances were made with this too.

Note, Russo-Balt was Russia's only major vehicle factory, and produced most of the home-grown aircraft of the Imperial Russian Airforce, including the Ilya-Muromets.

Cheers ... I'm new to the WWI scene, had never heard of the 'marque' (which I see is still going). Thanks for sharing. Anyway, armed with the name, Google search on the name in Cyrillic turns up some great hits - such as http://www.wio.ru/tank/ww1t/spflak.htm (Russo-Balt, White and Peerless flak wagons) with links to armoured cars, tanks, etc. into the bargain. Wow, a whole new world.

[edit - aagh, can't post Cyrillic?  Oh well, I don't know Russian anyway.)

I was aware of its proper name (Baltique presumabely meaning 'Baltic' in Latvian).
when you say 'image 3' do you mean image 4, since 4 is an armoured car, and 3 is a hearse?

Why Latvian???
Before 1918 Riga was no Latvia, it was Livland Gouverment of Russian Empire with official speaks Russian an German...

Yes, I mean image 4, sorry. Picture 3 is a motor-omnibus from Riga, no hearse. Type M 24/35 HP, chassis Nr. 90, 1912. Only one built, here is rebuilt version from 1913.

I say tdade-mark was Russo-Baltique  in French wroten.
Russo-Balt is trakslation of cyrillic trade-mark (also Russko-Baltijskij and Russko.-Balt.). On a radiator was wroten trade-marks in Russian or in French: Russo-Baltique. In news-papers and magazins was worldwide wroten also Russo-Baltique.
Russo-Baltique built from 1909 to 1918 in Riga and Petrograd 632 cars and lorries (incl. 402 for Russian war departament), types C, K, (C & K licenze of belgian Fondu), E, L, M, D, O, T and some trucks assembled Russo-Baltique-Arbenz.

Well, Latvian because it was founded in Riga, and although it was part of russia, everyone there spoke Latvian.

You clearly know more about this than me.

P.S thanks for the logo photos.smile
