has released the first edition of their quarterly magazine for 2015. Armorama has been sent a copy of Militär Fahrzeug 1-2015 to provide our members with a look inside.
Militär Fahrzeug is a quarterly magazine from Tankograd Publishing
. The text in this magazine is entirely in German which may deter some from looking these magazines up. I will admit that if you are unable to read German you will miss out on a lot of the information contained in this magazine, but the pictorial information between its covers looking at a broad range of subjects should have enough appeal to satisfy most modellers. The range of subjects covered can also make Militär Fahrzeug a cheap source of reference material as Tankograd Publishing
often provide some of the images from their range of new releases as short segments.
This edition of Militär Fahrzeug is printed on thinner paper than the usual publications from Tankograd Publishing
; however the paper stock is a glossy paper which does promote the pictures very well. This edition has 56 pages bound in a card cover which should keep the magazine in good order after the reader has thumbed through it. Inside you will find features on the:
- Neuer LKW Iveco 15 t 8x8 FSA
- Sherman Self Propelled Assault Bridge
- Fallschirmjäger Battalion 261
- Panzer Regt 10
- Netherlands Armoured Forces
- M3A3 BFIST
- Type 10TK
- 28cm Morser
- Manitou MHT 950L Fork truck
All of these articles are accompanied with very high quality photographs, and that includes the black and white images from World War 2.
While taking into account that many of you reading this will not be able to read German, I still urge you to give this publication a look before dismissing it out of hand. The cost of €8.95 is not excessive and they do have some excellent reference material between the covers. I would like to see this printed in English, or at the very least the captions printed in both German and English to maximise the appeal to those who don’t read German, but are still interested in what this magazine has to offer.
