Romanian Military Museum: Shermies, MkIV's, an' stuff....
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.

Shame they can´t "trim their bush" though. Makes no sense to have that high brush around there. Oh, well, could be worse.


Hey! Where is Ossie and his pics? He should be back by now, methinks.

Whew! OK, thought we'd lost you there for minute. We expect updates and pictures....and we don't mean wedding pictures!

Since who doesn't love multi-barrel implements of destruction, I'll take this opportunity to wander off topic with a few pics from the previous visit of a few that caught my eye...like this early Naval five-barrel thingy that looked about right for raking the decks of the other guy (or as early AA):

Great items! I believe the horizontal barrelled weapon is a Nordenfeldt Gun, the rotary five-barrel a Hotchkiss and the weapon with carriage appears to be a Mitrailleuse of some sort - perhaps even a Montigny Mitrailleuse. Truly an interesting assortment of weapons.

I was thinking the horizontal barrelled weapon looked like the Nordenfeldt that we have at Aberdeen. I don't know if Neil has any pictures or not.

The rotary wepons look like typical Gatling type weapons of the time. There was usually a bin or a stick magazine used to feed them

Yes, I think the rotary is a Hotchkiss, didn't see any magazines or slots though, I assumed it was a one-shot-per, then manual reload. I might have pics of info plates, was trying not to clutter the armor stuff with OT stuff. My pics are out of sequence as I was trying to "husband" my memory card, which is not very systematic, but you never know what you might need to sacrifice when you find something more interestng to shoot! I'll sort through my stuff.

Maybe we can appeal to Ossie for more info since he's going soon!

Hotchkiss revolving cannon normally fed via a sheet metal guide sort of like the 40mm Bofors - although I'm not sure if they used "stripper"clips. They were usually 37-57mm in caliber and were used as anti-torpedo boat armament. 19th century naval armament is of interest to me and here are a couple of links to Hotchkiss photos for those interested:

It seems they have introduced a photography charge there... 30c an image apparently.

That was in effect when I was there. While it is cheap, I might mention that it is advantageous to carry at least two memory cards. Wink

(Probably you are doing this anyway)

Its a bit of a pain in the butt when I intended taking the usual highly detailed walkaround ( minimum of 50 images) of each artillery piece...
