Snow in Moscow, cold in kubinka
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.

T-34/76 m1941 at Victory Park, Poklonnaya Gora, Moscow (Russia).
Hull of a T-34/85 built at the factory No. 174 and turret from the Stalingrad Tractor factory (STZ), produced in 1942.
Thanks for posting the pic, seems like the Russian winter comes early this year..

Any other photos?

the tank above is actually across the street from Victory Park, Poklonnaya Gora, I saw most all the tanks at Kubinka, Lenino, Central Armed Forces Museum, Morino and the Artillery Museum in St Petersburg. In England we went to the IWM, Fleet Air Arm museum, Bovington and the DDay Museum in Portsmouth. At Bovington I saw 2 Tigers, one inside and one outside. I have about 2000 pics so it will be a will before i post any I guess.....

I wonder why the Shrivenham Tiger II was outside. I really hope that it will not be returned to Shrivenham.. let it accessible to the public !!

Is it a real StuG, a 1:1 scale copy of it or a scaled model ??

I have it in my StuG StuH PDF list but I really have a doubt, I think it's not a real one. Any guess?

And someone should persuade them (they should at least try) to set up a trade for the Tiger II engine and gearbox from Axvall, that puppy can be a runner!

Yes, and that's why I'm asking precisely in this thread.

That's a scale model (1:16 maybe?) the detail is to low for a 1:1 scale and just imagine the scale of the display needed for that (roof height in particular). You can safely remove that one from the preserved StuG list.

What about these Pz IV and StuG III in the Dnipropetrovsk Museum of History in Ukraine?
The 2 tanks look like reproductions but at 1:1 scale..
