Sorry for the delay, I was rather busy this week. Let's begin.
"High-speed battlewagon Fighting Vehicle was designed by military engineer 3rd rank from Tambov. Essentially, it was a hover battle troop carrier, 14,5 tons, 6850 hp engine and maximum speed of...350 km/h!
Here's the drawing:
Maus? Elephant? Not sure, but the "ears" are definitely remarkable. Basic idea of the project proposed by an engineer from Moscow was to construct a tank that could provide reliable armoured protection for accompanying infantry troops.
Pocket SPG, Airborne style
The photo shows experimental airborne cannon ChK-37 mounted on GAZ-64 automobile. Not really sure if it was fully operational without additional "emplacement" works, but it looks rather impressive.
September 16th, 1940
No details at all, but the picture looks very dieselpunk. It is really hard to say anything about the size of the beast, some estimations give something like T-26, but in such measures the cannons would be even less than 37-mm, and no place for the crew..but the have a refrigerator! Others say about 3,5 meters high, a bit less than 3 meters wide, 6,5-7 meters long, so something like T-28, but higher, so the refrigerator turns into an elevator. And turrets-turrets-turrets...By the way, "medieval" style of drawing also must be noticed.
This outstanding amphibious vehicle was created by an engineer from Dneprodzerzhinsk. Streamlined design, old-school helmets, overwhelming machine-gun power - all is at its place.
