This short paper presents a brief overview of the Soviet global military mapping programme and focuses on its coverage of Malta. It examines the Soviet topographic mapping of the archipelago at various scales (from 1:1,000,000 to 1:50,000), illustrates how the extensive Soviet symbology was used to portray various aspects of the Maltese landscape, and explores some possible source materials.
