German engineers. The book you see before you is devoted to the same secret
projects, but this time the heroes were the devices offered by Soviet
designers. And these are not simple tanks, but spherical and cylindrical combat
vehicles! The topic seems completely frivolous, but only at first glance. Yuri
Pasholok offers you a truly Titanic work based entirely on archival documents.

The Fund of the Main armored Directorate of the red army (GABTU ka) has a separate inventory - the Department of inventions. It was there that the materials of those inventions that were out of business were stored: not only absurd and untenable, but also those that became victims of unfair competition, or did not interest the big officials of the GABTU KA. In addition to domestic archival documents, the book uses a lot of foreign materials.

The book you are holding opens a series that we would call " KB im. Serbsky". Much of what you can read in this book is worthy of a specialized institution that bears the name of a famous Russian psychiatrist.

Meanwhile, this is not a dump, as some researchers sometimes think. In the Department of inventions got quite adequate, and sometimes implemented in metal projects that were the victim of unfair competition or did not interest the big ranks of the GABTU KA. Some of the projects that seemed to have been abandoned in the archive turned out to be in demand later, and only correspondence about their uselessness remained in the Department of inventions.
