To all the W.W.1 nuts,and distracted ones,i´d like to remind about the new 1/35 Russo-Balt T w/76mm A.A.gun.from Panzer-Shop. It´s a Multimedia resin kit,with rubber-wheels and photo-etched.
It was a pleasant surprise,and a nice model to my W.W.1 collection of military vehicles.

NEW 1/35! Russo-Balt T truck w/ 76mm AA gun .

June 11 2004, 5:06 AM 

That looks great! It's such a pleasure when a new WW1 1/35 kit comes out and this looks like a fine one. I also like when the kits include a new-to-scale artillery piece. Is the 76mm gun the Russian field piece, or mountain arty?

76 mm gun model 1902/30 field gun.

June 11 2004, 11:58 AM 

Hi Joseph,i am not a "specialist" in A.A.Russian guns,but "yes" it´s the 76mm field gun.
The first model from this Russian 76mm gun was this one:

The original Russian 3-inch gun model 1902


To the "Russo-Balt truck",they adapted the same A.A.gun,but allready modified and modernized. The maximum range of this gun reached 14,000 metres.
The 76mm A.A.gun incorporated into the Russo-Balt T is this one above:

The modernised 76 mm gun model 1902/30.


The 76.2 mm Gun Model 1902 was the most famous and one of the best Russian three-inch field guns.After this first model,the red Army made several models based on it.

Russo- Baltic armoured platform truck

June 11 2004, 8:29 PM 

May I humbly say with certainty the gun is not the Model 1902, or any of it's variants. It is the 76.2mm Lenders Gun Model 1914. A limited production batch (12-20 estimated) of Russian naval ordnance designed for high elevation (AA) work, but never actually fitted to ships during the war. They were adapted for the truck mounted AA role rather successfully during late 1915, and saw combat during 1916/17.
Though similar in appearance to the M1902, visual comparisons will disclose the mid-mount of the trunnions, and under-barrel shorter recoil tube.

If I were able to attach pics I would illustrate an example at rest in a German motor park of captured vehicles from 1917.

Captured vehicle photos

June 12 2004, 9:13 AM 

Dear Mr.Emil Hoffmann,your explanation are right for sure,and i must correct to 76,2mm A.A.gun-(that´s the real designation). But the truth is that,the Russian made severals modification from the first 76mm AA gun(1902/30)or "Model 02 Putilov".
I must say,that the they are very similar to the Russo-Balt 76mm AAgun.
Apart of that,i´d like so much to see this photos,because it´s my favorite subject,and i am allways "hunting" pictures from W.W.1 vehicles. If you want,you can send the photos to my e.mail.I´ll be very greatfull for that.

Russo-Baltic AA gun lorry

Please note the emblem of the Imperial Russian Armoured Car Corp visible on the open door of the nearest vehicle.

As I recall, the vehicles utilised were either American Peerless, or White truck chassis.
