A Soviet motorcyclist looks at his route to a topographic map.
The motorcyclist uses a Soviet motorcycle brand TIZ AM-600 (Taganrog instrumental factory, 600-cc engine).
At the beginning of the 1940s, the TIZ AM-600 was the most powerful (16.5 hp) domestic motorcycle in Soviet Russia. TIZ was widely used in the Red Army in the divisions of scouts, signalmen, military traffic regulators. On it, the only Soviet motorcycle, Degtyarev’s machine gun was mounted directly on the steering wheel.
