Congratulations on the photos, Dimas.
But how did a Soviet Stalinets S-60 gun tractor (licensed copy of the U.S. Caterpillar) get up there?
I don't think the Japs captured much hardware from Zhukov during the Nomonhan/Khalkin-Gol fighting in the summer of 1939....rather the reverse.
Amazing pictures, a rare treat to see.
Thanks for uploading these for all to see
I think it's a soviet side tractor, and not a captured one

Are these the islands still in dispute as to ownership between Russia and Japan?
