    Kadriorg the collected weapons belonged to the Tallinn defenders, crossroad of Weitzenbergi street and Poska street
    More pictures probably from the same area (can you confirm?).
    By the way, who is this pair that keeps cropping up in all the pictures? As for the subject matter, the armored car in my pictures, I have some thoughts, but am not entirely sure.

    Likely not. I suspect it's Russian, there were only two ever made at Tallinn factories for the Soviet Navy (Baltic Fleet) special police mobile units (a.k.a. Zagradotryad). Evidently, based on ex-Estonian Army Steyr-640 trucks. Here's the second one. Place and date unknown. You could just make out Navy black uniform of the dead crew hanging out of the cabin. Battle damage to the hull and the turret also in evidence.
