Back from Poland
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.

Hello,

I'm back from Poland where I met Rafal Bialecki and his wife (very nice people), and from Czech Republic where I met Patrik Krista, who is also very kind. Here are some pictures I took there, it mostly shows US vehicles for now :

Good job P-O! That's quite a harvest. I even saw a RN from a range that wasn't previously identified.

well, infortunately not. It is said that :

"Unlike most of the other museums in Wroclaw, it cannot be entered from the street. The former Military Engineering Museum can be visited only during the "Open Barracks Day" upon prior reservation – even with a guide. Entrance is free."

This is what Joe DeMarco said about this :
"40190084 should correspond to serial number 562, converted by Massey-Harris. "

Karlovac is in Croatia, there is a war memorial :

Ah, now I've got it. My source had a typo at the start of the range.

Thanks,
