Tankograd Publishing have e-mailed us their latest list of releases. Now, they are always interesting, but whether or not it's just my personal prejudice, but this month it seems even more interesting than usual. A significant part of this announcement, is the news that they are release some of their earlier and (highly-useful) titles.
Two categories of releases this month. The COMPLETELY New publications and THREE Reprints in their superb 'Technical Manuals' Series.
Now, i've always considered Tankograd an incredibly-useful source for modelers, this month though, it seems even more so with coverage on a huge amount of vehicles available in model form.
Tankograd Publishing - NEW Releases
Nr. 9017 - Task Force HELMAND
Since 2006 British Forces have operated in southern Afghanistan under ISAF. Their mission in the Helmand Province is to assist the Afghan government in creating a safe and secure environment, consult in the creation and training of the Afghan security forces and to further the reconstruction of the country.
For the first time this publication shows the full range of vehicles fielded by Task Force Helmand in 2011 including many, that were only recently specially procured for the Afghanistan deployment. Apart from protected patrol vehicles, armoured reconnaissance vehicles and armoured infantry fighting vehicles, the numerous pictures and detailed texts also present logistic vehicles, engineer equipment, artillery systems and helicopters.
Nr. 7023 - Yugoslav Armies: Armour of the Yugoslav/Serbian Armies from 1945 to Today
Few armies field an armoured corps with such a turbulent history and such an unusual motorpool as the Yugoslav Armies since World War 2. While the early years were dominated by captured Wehrmacht vehicles and supplies from the Allies, the 1950s saw major influence by the American side. In the 1960s a change of policy saw the introduction of Soviet and Warsaw Pact vehicle material, before in the 1970s domestic production mostly took over. While many other books focus on the Civil War on the Balkans in the 1990s, this publication shows for the first time the variety of Yugoslav and Serbian Armour covering more than sixty years of history and with many hitherto unpublished photos.

Nr. 4017 - Einheits Diesel Truck
With the transition from the Reichswehr to the Wehrmacht intentions grew to create a standardised truck design for the army. The result was the ‘Light, Off-road-capable Standardised Truck 6x6 Type HWA 526 D', or short ‘Einheits-Diesel' that was built by almost all German truck manufacturers based on one unified design. In the early war years its robustness, reliability and superior off-road-capabilities made it a legend. This publication shows the development history, background of purchase as well as the numerous variants of the Einheits-Diesel in many hitherto unpublished photographs.
