Cold war sat-nav-ski captured from a Russian tank for sale...<br />
<br />
Auctioneers J P Humberts are selling what was the cutting edge of Cold War sat nav technology from beyond the Iron Curtain.<br />
<br />
Although far from portable, the large and complex device would allow Russian tank crews to navigate themselves around various European cities ...providing they had the correct map rolls on board.<br />
<br />
Expert Francesca Ellis says 'During the Cold War period Russia produced large scale plans of American, British and Irish towns and cities.'<br />
<br />
'These are of astonishing accuracy and contain an amazing level of detail, especially considering they were compiled under great secrecy.'
