USA (NOW V3.0!), Canada, France and Belgium AFV Registers
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.

Michel, you're welcome..

Neil, I checked your USA register and compared the vehicles list for the Auburn WW2 museum with a photo gallery published on Flickr, and it seems that you forgot some vehicles. Here is the gallery :

That tank is a Chieftain !!

My question is, are all the other vehicles mentioned the genuine article?

I really love that RSO w/ PAK40.

I gotta get up to Auburn, someday.

Most of the vehicles came from a museum in France, so I think all are at least partially genuine - although I have heard many have some mocked up components or upper hulls...

It comes from a museum in Belgium indeed (the city of Arlon is not in France, maybe it will be one day..) Wink

Thanks - looks like that was added to waymarking.com just a few days ago. And based on Google Street Maps it appears to be an actual recent addition as well!

Wonder where She came from?

Hopefully another rescued from being a range target instead of a transfer from another location. Add her to my list. Thanks Michel.

The guys talk about a SdKfz 254 (Saurer RK-7) which is currently in a private collection in the US :

"Funny thing was that, postwar, one of these was used to make a 'tank' whereby a Czech family escaped to the West. The vehicle made a tour of the US to help sell bonds and on the D-day anniversary of 2005, it resided in the collection of Jim Gilmore of Pennsylvania."

"The only problem with that is that the Czech man changed the superstructure to look more "Russian" There are pictures of it in its transfigured form in the front cover of, I beleive, MMiR Issue 40. There is another one that resided at Aberdeen, but was recently sent to Munster."

Piney,

according to Rudi Ehninger, "The vehicle there was captured in Lybia in 1943 and sent to Aberdeen for evaluation. It is a wheel cum track machine!

End of the 80s this example were handed over to the WTS-Collection together with the SdKfz 231. While the 231 was perfectly restored, the SdKfz 254 still waits for restoration. It is in storage and wasn't presented to the public since then."

Don,
I'll have to take a look at my photos. Any chance this one was marked with "FMCV" and a number?

What you see is all there was. I assume those are both Panthers, just wondering if its gone to the recycling 'dweeb'.

Interesting though
