Artist's Description

In cryptography, Fialka (M-125) is the name of a Cold War-era Soviet cipher machine. A rotor machine, the device uses 10 rotors, each with 30 contacts along with mechanical pins. “Fialka” means “violet” in Russian. Information regarding the machine was quite scarce until circa 2005 because the device had been kept secret.

Fialka contains a five-level paper tape reader on the right hand side at the front of the machine, and a paper tape punch and tape printing mechanism on top. The punched-card input for keying the machine is located on the left hand side.

This example is currently on display at Bletchley Park near Milton Keynes, home of the Enigma code breakers of World War II.
