Sofia. National museum of military history
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.

This pictures show some 37 and 47 mm Czechoslovakian guns, and it also gives you an idea about the area where all the unidentified guns are stored. It's quite crowded Smile

Massimo, what is the "Gruson" reference? I thought these were all Krupp horse drawn and emplaced turrets. Is this not the same thing? Maybe it's just a language reference...see link below.

It's a references to Grusonwerk:
de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grusonwerk

Later on, after it was acquired by Krupp, the company was called Friedrich Krupp AG Grusonwerk.

The first SdKfz 8's picture I posted end ups being selected for Flickr's Explore section and accumulated more than twelve thousands visits within the first day, while the others reached the usual two or three hundreds Shocked

By far my most popular picture ever!
