What's this tank please? (european pre-1942)
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.

It's German, a Grosstraktor, one of the experimental designs tested in Kazan during the early thirties.
Later on it was used as gate guardian inside a barrack, and that's where the picture was taken.

well, what does it means? Do you think that there photos were made in quantities during WW2, or could it be reprints from the postwar period?

Hello,

I received the photos today and frankly, they look original. Most of them have "Agfa Brovira" markings and "Foto-K├Ânig G811 Grosskopie" stamp, one has something hand-writed in Gothic script. I think that several sets were printed and provided to some German officers.
