Blog Profile: Tankograd

1023367375People interested in Soviet tanks and armor may find the blog “Tankograd” worth checking out.  Authored by Tiles Murphy, this blog features extremely long and detailed posts focused on a specific Soviet vehicle.  So far the author of the blog has posted three entries, looking at the BMP-3, BTR-80, and the T-72.  These posts are quite possibility the most detailed and extensive descriptions of these particular vehicles on the internet in English.  In fact, they probably contain as much or more information than many of the books written on these vehicles.  If ever a blog entry could rightfully be called “epic”, this is it.
