Christie Price List

"Minutes of the discussion between comrades Khalepskiy, Gobar, and mister Christie
  1. Christie only produces one type of tank and wishes to elaborate on interest in "the type of tank that you produce for sale to the US Army and abroad".
  2. No tanks are currently runners. The old one was taken apart, the new one is being assembled. The new one is similar to the old one with improvements.
  3. For $200,000, he will sell technical information and rights to build three types of tanks:
    1. Main type
    2. Amphibious
    3. With a 6" gun mount (chassis)
      The last two types are likely obsolete. The amphibian is 6 years old. The new tank does not swim.
    4. The Army Department must give permission for the sale (mister Samurai or the Secretary of War). Christie will obtain the permission himself if we send him a letter with an official request.
    5. Christie says that rights were already sold to Japan and Poland, the last one having obtained them recently.
    6. Christie is going to Washington on Thursday (the 10th) until April 30th.
