KV-1 Soviet Heavy Tank Special Report AFV-048

This Special Report consists of 2 separate items, both in English, and comprises 167 pages with 134 monochrome photographs and diagrams. The first item is the Preliminary Report produced by the School of Tank Technology in 1944. This summarises the results of examinations of a KV-1 which was shipped to Britain complete with spares and documentation in 1943. The second item is an abridged translation of the Service Handbook for the KV-1. It gives more crew-oriented information about the vehicle and includes operating and service details. Together these 2 studies give a great deal of background to the KV-1 including stowage, metals analysis, a wiring diagram, and descriptions of all the major assemblies.

Tiger 1 Special Report AFV-039

The reports are in English. There are colour and many monochrome illustrations including vehicle stowage diagrams. Of particular interest is the account of a battle in Italy which resulted in the destruction of most of a Squadron of Tiger I tanks. Because of the poor and fragile condition of the original documents some of these reports are verbatim transcriptions.
