This dictionary was undertaken in order to provide a current unclassified working aid for military specialists. It covers equipment from all services of the Soviet Armed Forces except the Navy, for which sufficient material was unavailable. Unclassified Russian, English, and German Language sources were used, and Russian expansions were provided when they could be found. The dictionary is intended as a working aid only, and not as the final authority on any specific piece of equipment. The basis for this work was the Soviet Military Equipment included in the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agencys publication Glossary of Soviet Military and Related Abbreviations, 1 Sep. 1965, supplemented by other unclassified sources. No analysis was attempted by the author, except that when conflicting data was noted, an attempt was made to select the most reliable source. The dictionary contains over 6350 Soviet military equipment designators, which are arranged according to the Russian alphabet. Following each designator is its Russian language expansion, when available, and a definition in english, plus any amplifying data.
