Hi ifill.
I wasn't vouching for the authenticity of the caption, in fact I suspected the captions were somehow mixed up because I know Bill really knows his stuff. I just thought it was kind of funny like "Few of the soldiers could remember a meeting with them". :lol: I am grateful for a Russian speaker to get them straightened out and provide additional information, which is why this Forum is so valuable. I have found Google to be pretty good in the western European languages but much less so in Russian, etc. In Tagalog forget it. 8O :lol:
Cheers,
Max

I am not sure if this is the remains of a Zis halftrack or of the reverse-engineered truck made from a halftrack. The front axel guard is indicative of either,

Hi Kerry,

the remains of this vehilce is from the type ZiS - 32 I think and I mean that it is a half-track tractor, because You can see the limber and the gun behind this vehicle. Here a pic of a ZiS - 32 out of the booklet "ZIS - 5" by Nikolay Polikarpov.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert!
I wonder didn't you fall victim of a typo?
On your pic above is the very first version of the halftrack, the model is ZiS-22. The next model was ZiS-42, followed by ZiS-42M (with modified tracked part), both based on ZiS-5V wartime production trucks (welded front fenders).
ZiS-32 was the 4x4 version, this one:

Hi ilfil,

I´m awfully sorry about my mistake. Thank You very much for the correction and the further information and the excellent pic. I must be more carefully with the designations of vehicles.

Best regards

Bert
