"October 18th, 1945
To the Deputy People's Commissar of Railways, Vice General Director 1st Class comrade Arutyunov
A captured special tank weighing 160 tons (including a removable 40 ton turret) directed to the NIBT proving grounds (Kubinka station, Western railroad) has been stuck at the storage terminal of the cargo base at Brest-East.
The transfer of the special tank is delayed due to the fact that the storage terminal does not have cables necessary for moving the special tank.
I ask for your order to expedite the transfer of the special tank and its delivery to its destination.
I ask you to reply with your decision.
Deputy Chief of the GBTU, Engineer-Major of the Tank Service, Pavlovskiy"
