Lonate Pozzolo. Parco della Rimembranza
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.

At first you may believe this is an Austro-Hungarian Infanteriegesch├╝tz M.15, but it's not, it's a copy build for the Italian Army.
