  • Soviet Pre-War Armanents Production

    I am looking for Soviet pre-war armanents production figures. It is very easy to find these for the 1941-1945 period, but not for the pre-war period.

    So does anybody know where to look for the figure of artillery, aircraft, tanks produced lets say 1935 through 1941?

    i don't know, if you can read russian, but i give you to first time this link.

    here you have a great list from book, we speak about prewar production.

    if you don't understand russian cyrillic alphabet, so i rate you, use google translator or prompt translator from Russian to English, so you can understand the russian book.
    but if you use translator, you should give attention by word translation, because translator make not perfect translation work. is only to help to understand meaning sentence.
