I saw this very rare movie and was very pleased with vehicles shown there.
17 April 2006 | by amvasSee all my reviews

A few days ago I saw this movie, which got "Oscar" prize in 1942 and was much impressed. I saw many rare vehicles in movement. Such as T-35, T-40 tanks, old trolleybuses, trams, cars... Can't miss common KV-1, T-34, BT-7, T-60s. Also different sorts of aircraft (IL-2, IL-4, PE-2, Yak-1, MiG-3) and guns (45-203mm). Also armored train, balloons, different fortifications can be seen. presented. I think most valuable is not the sound, but pictures, shown there. Of course, the quality of my copy is not ideal, but taking into account what time it spend in archive, it's quite acceptable. Highly recommend to those, who are interested in modeling different Soviet vehicles, small arms, guns and other weapons.

Regards, Alex
