Searching for Romanian Interwar Armament Publications

Post by Winnie the Vladimir Pootin » 04 Jul 2019 03:28

Greetings Axis Forum Members,

In my studies regarding interwar armaments in Eastern Europe, I've had a difficult time with Romania. I've found plenty of sources on artillery conversions, light armament acquisitions, orders of battle etc. from 1939 onward, but a complete dearth of anything prior. I have found in Romanian language sources that the 1934 General Staff (led by then BG Ion Antonescu) developed a thorough equipment inventories as well as a modernization plan, approved in 1935 by the Supreme Council of National Defense as the "Planul decenal de înzestrare și dotare a armatei" or roughly "the Decade of Arms Endowment" (my Romanian is based on my knowledge of French, so dreadful at best).

I'm almost certain this document would have the information I'm looking for, but I've been unable to find it or any secondary source that offers more than a surface level summary. So my query to you dear forum members is;

Does anyone have a link to the study, or know of a source (Print or online, Romanian or otherwise) that offers more details of its contents?
Or, happen to have a different source on interwar Romanian armaments, particularly in small arms?

For context, I'll throw in the links to the two Romanian language sources I have that make reference to it.

Thank you so much for your help and time.

I'll look into my old files and will come back with a replay next week, now I don't have the HDD with me.
