Pz.III ausf.N recovered in Norway
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.

Panzer III recovered in Norway

Quoting "Simon orchard" :

"Just released from it's earthy tomb yesterday. Here's the first of 3 Pzkpfw.III ausf.N buried at the North Norwegian air base of Bardufoss.

These photos were taken by my good friend and fellow forum member Tor-Helge who lives in the area. It was recovered by the Norwegian army and has now been safely delivered to the local museum there where it will be restored to static display condition.

As you can see it's been painted in Norwegian green on the turret and upper surfaces. It was used post-war by the Norwegians for airfield defence. We're not 100% sure yet which unit they came from but it's either Pz.Abt.211 or Pz.Abt."Norwegen"

The phrase 'age will not weary them' certainly doesn't apply to those poor old relics. Brings a tear to the eye, being a Pz111 lover.

Why a tear, they're being saved and they could have suffered far, far worse at a firing range.

I don't believe his comment was intended to be a jab at saving the vehicles - it was more of a comment of seeing them now as compared to what they once were...
