Yugo M52 Lafette

Postby Chuckm » Fri Dec 14, 2018 6:56 pm

Back in 2010, Orin Harding, 762x51, was working on a translation of a Yugo manual on the M52 Lafette. He posted some pages of the Manual ( in Yugoslav) as a "show and tell"

I downloaded the pages and just came across them doing a new hard drive and wondered if he had ever gotten it done.

I have tried to use Google Translate on them and have done some but would like to use the pictures but they are locked to the file and I cannot remove his watermarks from them.

Anyone have any ideas on this? I did get a PDF of the Yugo M53 manual from a chap in Serbia. I can forward to to any one who would like a copy, but you need to be able to read Serb!!!

I remember when it was posted. No I do not believe anything came of it yet. In talking with John he said that he had received a German detail /breakdown manual on the Lafette and was going to work on it. Bergflak has done a lot of nice work on the lafettes and has some great postings on his site.

I talked to Orin. He doesn't know what ever happened to that manual (misplaced/lost/sold). I tried to buy it from him.

I learned enough Swedish to translate the manual for the 20 mm S18-1000. I could take a shot at the Yugo lafette manual if someone has that, but going through all that for another operator manual for the gun isn't going to happen. I already have several operator manuals translated from German.

I saved pages 64-71, 73-75, and 77-82 of the Lafette disassembly manual that Orin posted. Not sure why I had page gaps, but I would assume that the pages that aren't there weren't in the files he posted. I can add those here if you guys would like and with Orin's permission.

I doubt that permission is necessary - he's the one who uploaded them on here in the first place. They may even still be here, somewhere.

Here are the pages that I saved out of the manual scans. Hope somebody finds them helpful.
