Hello Guys


  I ran across this picture a while ago, I am not sure about its name, year built, any thing. The soldiers uniform all though its a drawing, seems to be 1920ish Russian???. Any ideas??

Looks like a lawnmower with a gun, har har!


Um, other than that, I haven't anything constructive to say, I'm afraid. I'm quite curious about what it turns out to be, though...

Well the uniform is the original Red Army one designed by Trotsky. The gun strikes a chord - I've a feeling that I've seen a photo or proper line drawing somewhere. Unfortunately I'm away from base for a week with no access to any of my library material. I'll have a rummage when I get back

What a strange picture! The gunner is wearing a revolutionary budenkova hat, but his jacket has hussar or uhlan (or something) decorations on it ....they don't seem to match very well. And that gun is just wierd.
