Arsenalen
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.

Stefan,

please could you try to find the turret number from the museum's M4A2? It is either on the side below the pistol port, or on the top of the turret..

I'd also like to know if the dataplate is still inside the tank... I'd be very happy if it is still inside and if I could get a photo of it.

Pierre-Olivier

Ok, will take a look next time I visit the storage.

If you have the numbers, would it be possible to trace the history of the tanks?

Our Firefly must have been in a fight since there is many traces of shrapnel and/or cal 50 or 20 mm gun. The tank was bought from GB and in Sweden it was used for tests, but never as a target so the damage must have been from previous life. It would be great to trace parts of the history if possible.

Stefan

I already posted a link to an extensive set of pictures covering that Firefly. They are still available for download (it's a huge, 700 Mb file):

Hope this may help somebody to track down additional info on this tank

if we would like to know the combat history of tanks used by Great Britain, we would need to know the "T- numbers" painted on the sides. It would be good to see if the oldest photos you have of the Shermans in Sweden show these numbers. I'm afraid that we can(t do anything only with the American Serial Number.

Volvo B 12 "Per-Albin buss" - the most secret vehicle in the collection.
This bus was made after the invasion of Finland in 1939 - a mobile comminication central for the Swedish Government, to be able to leave Stockholm in case of invasion or bombing.

Most documents classified, so we have not found much about it.

If we compare it to "AirForce One" most people understand the importance it had in 1940.
