Cold war sat-nav-ski captured from a Russian tank for sale...
Auctioneers J P Humberts are selling what was the cutting edge of Cold War sat nav technology from beyond the Iron Curtain.
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.
Expert Francesca Ellis says 'During the Cold War period Russia produced large scale plans of American, British and Irish towns and cities.'
'These are of astonishing accuracy and contain an amazing level of detail, especially considering they were compiled under great secrecy.'
