Abstract:

AMPHIBIOUS VEHICLE, by A. Dozorov. Comments are made on operation in cold weather. The chain drive sprocket wheel should not be turned without first checking the spark. Warming the engine at temperatures below zero should be achieved by warming 2 or 3 times, bringing the temperature of the oil up to 90C, waiting 5 to 7 minutes, and then depressing the pump button. When afloat in cold water, the engine speed should be kept between 1000 and 1200 rpm, and the butterly valve should be closed. NUCLEAR WEAPONS AND TANKS, by A. Kuptil. The destructive factors of nuclear weapons are given as blast, flash, penetrating radiation, and radioactive contamination. Troops in tanks are said to have an undisputed advantage over other ground force personnel.
