Some tanks in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus
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.

Hi Dennis! Hi Folks!

Thanks for posting these photos!

That T34 over running a pair of Tiger Is is very interesting.

That 106 firing is a great shot. There is more danger behind than in front of one of those weapons!

Sgt, Scouts out!

Awesome photo,.....BUT there is only one firing....!?

I've never actually seen video or photos of an Ontos firing all six together, although I have heard many stories from my Ontos Vet friends.

Thanks for the post
Regards
Don

If you take a closer look you'll see that it is a sculpture, no real tanks.

Cheers,
Rik

It is a sculpture.
Plug the coords 51.042539, 36.746983 into Google Earth.

The maps look like the Kursk salient. Is it near Prokhorovka?
