Saumur
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.

I wonder if P-O knows something more, maybe they are restoring/repainting the gun


the 8.8cm gun is completely dismounted and is being cosmetically restored.
I had a look for some pics that I took in 2009 and/or 2010 but can't find them again.

BTW Is there an artillery museum in France? Kind of the Saumur equivalent, but for artillery?

Massimo


here it is :

http://musee.artillerie.asso.fr/

If you go there :
http://musee.artillerie.asso.fr/800%20materiels-collection.htm

and then click on France or USA or Allemagne etc.. you will see the different artillery pieces on display at the museum.

There are also some AFVs (an M7B7 for example), that you can see there :
