About six or eight years ago I saw a Czech military modelling magazine (called HPM?) which contained an article on Romanian armour in Moravia in 1945. It included a good number of photographs of knocked out Romanian tanks and self propelled guns destroyed in the last weeks of the war.

Does anyone know this magazine and which edition of it this article appeared in?

Many thanks,

Sid.

Sid,

I have almost all issues of HPM. I can look for the article you need. Do you have more details? Was it part of a larger scope article or was it just about Romanian armour in Moravia in 1945?
Cheers,

Ruy

Hi Ruy,

I think I was in Prague in about 1997. The article would have been at about that time or earlier.

I think the article was specifically devoted to Romanian armour in Moravia in the last weeks of the war. I can remember a several photos of knocked out Romanian armoured vehicles all of them painted with large red stars.

I haven't seen HPM since then, but I thought it was exceptionally good in the mid 1990s.

Cheers,

Sid.

Hi sid

Are you quite sure about the large red stars?

Cheers,
Dani

Hi Dani,

Good point. No, I cannot be sure they were red from black and white photos.

Cheers,

Sid.

Yes, they published one back in 1999 - on issue 9/1999.
Unfortunately, since then they didn't published any new one. Maybe they will do so during the current year.

Hi Sid,

You are right. HPM was very good back then and it still is. The latest issues have a different layout and a much better paper. And also colour profiles scattered throughout the magazine (and not just in front and end pages, and the typical interior central, colour pages printed in glossier paper).

Thanks for giving me a closer indication. 1997, then? I will check it again; I cannot recall - visually, I mean - the article with the photos you mention, but with the general index of all HPM issues published up to September, 1999, finding it should be easy.
I will take a look at the list when I'm back at home.

Cheers,

Ruy

P.S.: I will post also a list of all Romanian interest articles published up to issue 9/1999! :)

Or more exactly the overall color of the tank ( usually khaky or olive green and possible grey)

I asked to someone who write for this publication. He said "But if I am correctly informed a new "Romanian" article is prepared for HPM soon to be published"
Cool :D
"That magazine unfortunatelly have not it's website yet." :angry:
