Well I think that is a T26 chassis so I would guess T26 1935 AT-1 Self-propelled gun? T26 was has so many variants though very well may be incorrect.

I see that as being correct, Caldric. The suspension and hull are almost the same. A version of the T-26. The short gun length of Olegs pic shouldn't hamper the gun type facts. I know little about most Artillery.

well chassis is a dead giveaway:)
Self-propelled artillery mounts SU-5-2 (each armed with a 122mm howitzer) are parading in Khabarovsk. Only 15 such artillery systems were pro-duced. Some of them took part in combat operations near Lake Khasan. 7 November, 1937

Hi Oleg

The Soviet SP Guns in the top photo are Su-5-2s and not the AT-1, although they used the same T-26 chassis.

The AT-1 is at the top, the SU-5-2 is in the middle, and the bottom photo is the Su-5-1.

The third photo is of a 4.7 cm Pak(t) auf PanzerKampfwagen 1 Ausf B.

The attached photo was taken from 'Soviet Tanks and Combat Vehicles of World War Two', by Steven J Zaloga and James Grandsen.

Regards

Bob

Those are Soviet helmets that were used in the prewar period, and as you can see they have a comb on top of the helmet. The soviet M40 helmet substituted this helmet later on during the war.
