Heard a story yesterday from a fellow collector I've met locally that this camera was developed by KMZ for taking panoramic pictures of the artillery kill-zone.. anyone heard of such a thing before?

Zoom, thanks for link, that story was also in one of the small Russian catalogs (Forgot the name).

I have seen this page before that you linked us but only now noticed a link to this article:

Absolutely incredible and entertaining story about the inner circles of Soviet camera designers!!! Thanks for a great read!
