Buried Sherman in Arnheim
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.

Arnhem is located at the southern end of the IJssel linie. I think that this Sherman was part of this line.

That's not a complete tank
It is only a turret ,and was put there during the cold war
It is about 2 km from where I live ( it's Arnhem )

Walter, it may be possible the whole hull is still there, poured in concrete. Usually the whole vehicle was stripped so you only had a hull with a fully operational turret left. An entrance was then cut in the hull before it was placed in a hole and covered with concrete.

Your quite right David
I asked a friend who studies the IJssellinie
It is a carcas of the tank on 4 wheels in concrete
There is a engine in it for rotating the turret

This example had a MG fitted in place of the main gun. You can see the mantlet is welded up. The turret was rotated by hand power.
