To create this site, I used a great variety of sources, and I will not be able to list them all. However, there are some sources (people, books, magazines) that had a really vast influence on the site.

I would first like to express my profound gratitude to G.Grigsby and the folks at SSI, whose Steel Panthers series inspired my interest in armoured fighting vehicles.

I would like to thank Robb McLeod for his article on ERAs, Danila Vorobiev for the song translation, Paul Lakowski for his great job in compiling the armor estimates, and Viktor Mourakhovsky, Steven Zaloga and many other Tanker's Forum and Russian VIF-2 Forum members for their most helpful insights and contributions.

Most of information and scans were taken from published sources, especially:

A little copyright notice (since everyone has one). You are free to use any information and pictures from the site for any purpose, except where copyright is explicitly said to belong to a particular person or group other than your humble servant. It will of course be quite a discourtesy if large pieces of this site are used without a credit to the author, but it is up to your conscience (I cannot prevent it anyway ;)).

Thank you for your visit, and never hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or information on Russian AFVs that I might use.
