This volume, originally produced in 2004 as a restricted textbook for senior Russian military officers, offers a comprehensive overview to Russian military topographic maps and related publications.

Russian military maps are now found in hundreds of libraries around the world, and for many countries and regions represent the highest quality and most current topographic depiction.
