Book on LK II in Hungarian Service
Permalink   


The question of LK II tanks in Hungarian service has been discussed a number of times on this forum. I am trying to identify the correct title of a book that has been mentioned in this connection:

Biro Adam, Miklos Eder, Gyula Sarhidai, Strana oklopna vozila u Mactarskoj od 1921. do 1941 (Foreign AFV in Hungarian service 1921-41?)

So far, I was unable to identify this title in online-resources (incl. the catalogue of the Hungarian National Library). Could anyone inform me about the full title or the ISBN?

Thank you very much.

BTW: Hints on further - printed - sources on the topic are also most welcome

Apparently, Desert Erik has got this book.

He doesn't seem to have visited the Forum for almost a year. You could send him a personal message. (And reprimand him for not translating it and sharing the information.)

Since about Febuary, Scale Military Modeller has had an ongoing series of articles with some very good paintings and photos of the Magyar Kirayl Honvedseg. If you really want to see then them, I could scan them.
Cheers, Hugh.

Thank you, gentlemen, for your replies. I suppose it is the title nox quoted. I am trying to get hold of it.

There's two photo's in the book of the LK-II. I suppose it's not likely that any further photo's will ever show up. Hungary was at the time forbidden to own armour and the LK-II was obtained and tested in secret.
The book itself is obviously hard to get outside Hungary, though on the misty and slippery side-roads of the internet, you might find a digital copy.

Michel.

Talking of the LKII, is this one of the prototypes missing from the sequence or a misunderstanding?

Hello,
Does anyone have the abovementioned book "A Magyar Kiralyi Honvedseg kulfoldi gyartasu pancelos harcjarmuvei 1920-45"?
There is one photo of a Soviet T-35 tank which is important for my study of those tanks.
Unfortunately, a PDF version of the book available in the Internet provides low-quality images and doesn't allow clear vision of some significant technical details.
That's why I'm looking for one who possesses the hardcopy and could make a hi-res scan of this photo from page 100:
