Default US Army Russian Electronics Dictionary

In these days, when the only NOS worth the money is Reflektor, Voskhod, Svetlana, Novosibirsk - A cool birthday present from my girlfriend!

Perfect for getting the fine details from those Russian data sheets! Yes, all the phrases, like "maximum anode voltage, continuous" are translated in it. Sure, you can work most of it out without a book, but you can't beat detail when you are designing.

Now, just why could the US Army have written that in 1956?

Cold war.
There should be phrases like, "Where communists of your village hide?!"

I can hear Slim Pickens drawling, "Shoot, a fella could have a pretty good time in Dallas with all this stuff."

Curious fact... Slim did actually say "Shoot, a fella could have a pretty good time in Dallas with all this stuff." But it was dubbed to say "Vegas" in stead of "Dallas" (watch his lips...) due to the recent assassination of JFK in Dallas.

Translation:

Холодная война.
В словаре должны быть фразы типа: "Где прячутся коммунисты из вашей деревни?!"

The nearest it says to that is

"Где ключи для ваших ламп заводы из вашей большой город?!"

I think that line was added by a Mr Mike Matthews!
