Introduction

Tankograd Publishing has released the first Militär Fahrzeug of 2019. This is a quarterly magazine from Tankograd publishing whose title means Military vehicle in English. This magazine covers a wide spectrum of interests in a Military vain covering vehicles from many periods and countries along with a roundup of news, events and museums.

Review

This magazine is printed in a portrait style with a light card cover with a gloss finish and the cover will hold up to reasonable handling. The paper inside is of a good quality as magazines go and also has a semi gloss finish that displays the photographs well. This offering provides 56 such pages and should have something for everyone. The text is only in German which is a shame but not the end of the world.

The articles in this offerings are as follows:
Weapon systems of the Bundeswehr - The brand new LEOPARD 2A6MA2
News from the industry - CAESAR 155 mm
US Army - Return of the White Stars - M1A2 SEP V2
German Armaments Products – Army - UNIMOG on the Eurosatory 2018
Vehicle History of the Wehrmacht - PANZER IV F2 (G)
German Armaments Products – Army - APVT amphibious vehicle
Weapon systems of the Bundeswehr - MARDER with MELLS
British Army - Austin CHAMP
Museums, Events & Collector's Scene - Stonne / National US Armed Forces Museum
German Armaments Products – Army - LYNX KF41
Vehicle history Bundeswehr - Founding years of the Bundeswehr
British Army – 35th Engineer Regiment
Weapon systems of the Bundeswehr - HIRSCH instructor vehicle
Museums, Events & Collector's Scene - Military tracks – Overloon

Being written in German does have some benefit in that it is usually possible to get a good idea of what is written due to a lot of German being similar to English. The pictures speak for themselves regardless of your native tongue and the pictures are very good for the most part except where the time period and limitations in choice have been restrictive. The article on the Panzer IV F2 (G) ‘ Langrohr (Long Tube in English) being particularly interesting to me. I also like these magazines as they usually cover in a shorter way the vehicles of the upcoming or published books released each quarter.

Conclusion

These magazines from Tankograd Publishing represent an easy and affordable way to build up a reference library for your modelling. Covering such a wide number of topics means there are usually a few articles to grab your attention. The only negative to these titles is the German only text, but we cannot have everything. Well worth the cost.
