I cannot say where these photos originated. I only came across them on Russian forums and saved them in my attempts to categorize Russian armored trains. Forgive me. :oops:

I believe the first photo is Bronedrezyna D-38 while the second is D-37. I do not know the third. The fourth from what I can tell is a Modernyzovannaya Bronedrezyna AT-45.
Hi ArmchairSamurai

Do you know if the Bronedrezyna D-38 and D-37 draisines were only prototypes or were serial manufactured ?

As far as I can tell, the D-38 draisine proved to underperform, as it was overweight and the gun-platform was unsatisfactory. The D-37 itself I cannot find anything on, though I imagine it too suffered the same fate given only the one photo exists and how the DT-45 filled the role it was designed for.

I did find this recently, which I think may be yet another variation of the type. Its fate is likely similar.
