Hello Juha

Thank you very much for sharing your research with the rest of us.

I have especially found the references to T-28 very interesting and will post my own findings soon.

Thanks

Johnny

BT-5 from the Christie detachment if I'm not mistaken:
40981-40982, 40984-40986, 43881

Have anybody found the "famous" jumping of speeding BT-5 training picture in SA-Kuva?

*edit*
Aha, found it!
52920
Pity that it doesn't seem to be part of an series though, but there are 2 T-28 shots though:
52915, 52921

Thanks Tommy.

By using searchwords sokaisupullo (=blinding bottle) you can get 23 photos of T-34 and KV-1 and 36 photos of T-34, T-50 and KV-1 with kaksois*savu* (kaksoissavu = kaksoissavukäsikranaatti = twin smoke hand grenade)

Some BA-10 captured during the Winter War and flying the striped blue-white markings: N:o 11218-11220. These three photographs were shot in Suomussalmi on 8 January 1940 (as shown in N:o 11150, 11155 and on Päämaja's diary).

Captured T-26 with a twin turret: 133398. The photograph is dated to 1 August 1943, but probably taken in 1941/42 as many of the unmarked photographs near the number are dated the same.

I've been looking for some photos of Finnish T-34s lastly, but it seems some shots you've had recommend disappeared from the SA-Kuva. Please check blocks:
132707-708
132710-712
132731-734
132736-739
Do you have an access to them?
Cheers,
Pawel

They are accessible only from the Finnish language version if you tick the +päivättömät (+undated) check box.

I use Finnish language version, though I didn't check the box. Thank you very much your help. I thought inaccessible photos were taken for "temporary maintenance" :wink:
