    Hi CALIMERO,

    Well, the ordnace is obviously the Russian 130mm gun M-46 but I don't know what chassis it is mounted on. According to Mr Chassillan it could be the KrAZ-214. The Cubans have also developed a tracked version on the chassis of the T-34:

    Mr CHASSILIAN, like other raids journalists as Y. DEBAY ..., is not very good in recognition but concerning the cuban "CAESAR" the wheelbase is certainly a KRAZ product but between KRAZ-214 and KRAZ-255 it is impossible to choose.
    Cheers

    Just noticed something about the BMP SPG. In the photo Calimero2 posted (http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/1...ssillanji3.jpg) it has a rotating turret with the D-30 howitzer. But in those posted before (see below) the gun is in a fixed open top superstructure and in one photo it appears that the ordnance extends beyond the hull, which is not the case with the D-30.


    Conclusion: At least two different variations of the BMP SPG theme in Cuba. *The plot thickens*

    D'oh! I should have seen that! Note also that the muzzle brakes are different. If I had to guess I'd say that it could be the 100mm AT gun T-12/MT-12.

    Thats an SA-2 missile (I think the Russian designation is C-75) on a T-55 Chassis. Here's more pics of it from the same parade.

    Could be wreckage from one of the B-26s used during the Bay of Pigs invasion.

    Default A few more - sorry to dig up an older thread


    Another shot of the BTR-60 Armoured Car



    Rear shot of the Cuban "Cesaer" SPG - definitely looks like a KRAZ chassis to me - most likely a 255b series.

    I have some more scans if you want me to dig them up.
