Preserved Tanks in Brazil
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

P.-O. and Valls - I'll take note of your comments on my return. Just before I go I want to post nearly the last of the Linhares pictures.


Unique ID 1816: Linhares M41C (note the extended engine compartment)

Unique%20ID%201074:%20Linhares%20X1 Unique%20ID%201075:%20Linhares%20XLF%20(based%20on%20X1%20chassis)


It was good to get my first sight and pictures of an X1 and XLF.

Meanwhile Paulo Bidoli who contributed the pictures of the Stuarts at Bragança Paulista has sent me a lot more pictures and information. I'll put it all online on my return. However, I have invited him to call in to this forum so if he says hi while I'm away please make him welcome (as you guys always do).

The M41 C - Caxias was modified by Bernardini. The engine was a DS11 Scania and the extended rear was to accomodate the new radiators.

The X1A was the first of a serie of three, including the X1A1 and X1A2, a complete different vehicle (see my article in spanish at - www.panzernet.com/arti...pb1_jv.htm ) besides the other variation vehicles.

Next time you come, if you want, tell me and I will try to arrange some visits to other places.

Thanks for that. Currently I have no plans to return to Brazil. Is there any chance you could get photo's of other tanks, e.g. those in Vila Militar? The soldiers might be more friendly to a local than they were to a foreigner!

If anyone can identify the artillery pieces being towed by the M4 and M5 that would be appreciated, it's not my forte (as usual, click through for more photos).


Both are Vickers Armstrong 7.2 in howitzers used by Brasilan Army heavy artillery units.

Thank you, photo captions updated.


I have now added the photos of the Linhares museum from my recent trip:


Location ID 37100: Museo Militar Conde de Linhares



Anyone working on AFV Registers is welcome to link to the photos of armoured vehicles here (e.g. M2A1, M3A1, M8, Cascavel, etc.).

I have now finished working on Linhares. If anyone has any additional information, or spots errors, please let me know - otherwise I'm moving on to other collections.

Actually, I've gone back and added information on the plaques on the two tanks displayed inside. If anyone can improve the Portuguese translations (I'm using Google) please feel free to correct me:

Unique ID 860: L3, Linhares

Unique ID 1053: Renault FT, Linhares


Meanwhile I've added my photos of the L3 in the Vila Militar - that's where I just managed to get 3 pictures before being stopped by soldiers:

Unique ID 1777: L3, RCME Vila Militar

Indeed! It's pretty mad when they display a tank on the street, but then won't let you photograph it.

Finally, Sao Goncalo.

Location ID 37280: Praça Dos Ex-Combatentes, São Gonçalo

- any corrections or improvements to my Portuguese appreciated!


Unique ID 1788: M3A3, Sao Goncalo, Rio de Janeiro

It's serial 1475.

[img]http://PreservedTanks.com/Albums/American/1250-M3%20Lee%23Grant/IMG-6371_M3A3_SaoGoncalo_AArchive_c.jpg[/img]

- a nice shot, I think, using the 'JoeD camera pole' technique.

That's the last of the photos and information from my Brazil visit put online.

I'm now working through the information and photographs sent to me by Paulo Bidoli. First off, I've updated the entry for Itupeva:
