The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

K-61 / PTG Pływający Transporter Gąsienicow
Polish Army's amphibious carrier K-61 / PTG (Soviet made).
The K-61 is an unarmored, tracked transport vehicle with a watertight steel hull. The crew compartment at the front accommodates the commander and driver. The cargo compartment at the rear has a large loading ramp. The suspension consists of seven small road wheels with the drive sprocket at the front and the idler at the rear. The K-61 is unique among former Soviet tracked vehicles in that it has no track support rollers, but uses seven support slides. The vehicle is propelled in water by two propellers.
