Three Amigos in Lesany
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've got quite a few shots of SAMs that aren't mounted on a vehicle. Should we consider them artillery and use the dedicated forum?

Some notes on the D-442 FUG
- In the Czechoslovak Army served under the name: Obrneny transporter vz.65 (OT-65),
- No. 28/92 can be decoded as the 28th piece taken to the museum warehouse in 1992,
- For some unknown reason, the OT-65 was registered under two warehouse numbers: XX-533 and XX-630.

There are a couple of videos of this little popgun firing on Youtube (one is a blank demonstration charge with no recoil), the one below seems to be the real deal (zip on out to 3:00 to not waste time with the ever-changing exposure of the camera and a bunch of nothing happening). I love the audible alarms featured in the videos, which sound like they were modeled on an enraged VW Beetle.

Apparently, it was nuclear capable.

Especially interesting is the amount of what I gather are bits of the propellant charge bags or whatever is used that fall around the area after firing. Some looking quite hazardous.

The new hangar with ballistic missiles and rockets is a joy to visit, but a pain to take even barely decent photos. Very little spaces and those little spot lights triggered plenty of flares on my wide-angle lens Sad
