In 2001, I went for to Havana, Cuba for ten days, staying at a central hotel near the bars of Hemingway. These are the photographs that I took while there. There are others, but they will have to be included in future issues.

A2-73

A2-73   Russian produced tank outside the entrance to the “Museum of the Revolution”. Sorry, I do not know what name or model it is.

A2-74

A2-74   Same tank but from across the road. Note the age of the vehicles parked.

A2-75

A2-75   Russian tank. This one was inside the museum in its grounds, again name, model and date is a mystery to me.

A2-76

A2-76   Cuban Aircraft used by the Navy, make and model unknown to me, circa 1958.

A2-77

A2-77   Cuban aircraft used by the Air Force, make and model unknown to me, although I believe that one of these aircraft was British made and sold to the Cuban Government before the Revolution. Note the man near the wheels.

A2-78

A2-78 A Sam Missile in use at the time of the Missile Crisis. Note the wrecked jet engine to the front of it. This is given as a U.S. plane shot down during this period. I believe it belonged to the U.S. spy plane that was shot down.

A2-79

A2-79   A Home Made Armoured Vehicle for the Revolution, based on a tractor with
             thick metal plating.

A2-80

A2-80  A Home Made Armoured Vehicle for the Revolution, based on a tractor with thick metal plating

A2-81

A2-81  Side view of A2-79.

A2-82

A2-82   Same Armoured Vehicle as A2-81, this time you can see the front better and the two “V” rammers, one red the other black.
