Tank on a pedestal
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.

The Tank Commander pondered his latest position, remembering how his Platoon Commander berated his past failure to properly cover his flanking elements advance.

Confidently he muttered to himself...."I now have the best 'OVERWATCH POSITION' in all of Mother Russia!!"

"Alpha SET,......Bravo MOVE !!!"

Cool

I don't think it's a real one, the scale looks wrong.

It looks out of proportion to me too, Rikard. I've been looking for pictures of T-34-85s in similar angle to compare.

Dennis

That 2nd photo is reversed. Seems to me I've seen it before (somewhere).

As for the statue, it looks to be a statue. The hull angles are abit out of whack and the turret is out of proportion. Also it doesn't show 'weathering' of a steel structure.

I'm guessing some sort of concrete or carved rock sculpture.
