Brilliant pictures, Aleksandar.  Thank you for posting!  It's interesting how during the brief period of their "friendship", the Germans allowed the Soviets to not only examine, but actually purchase modern German weapons.  Apparently the reasoning was to impress and "overawe" the Soviets with the Germans "overwhelming" technological expertise.  The Germans also didn't think that the Soviets would have the time or expertise to copy anything of use, before Barbarossa, and soon after invasion, the Soviets would have collapsed like a "house of cards" and it wouldn't matter.  Some house, some cards.
