Example: in the barrel recoil of the guns was filled with a liquid called (bremsflussingkeit braun), but under conditions of intense cold was replaced by (bremsflussingkeit arktisch) subsequently became customary to employ a two liquids mixed in equal parts, which indicated with the registration BRAUN ARK sight in many tanks and cannons.
The letter G IN TANKS is something like 8O
