Today at Oirschot
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.

Leopard 1V r/n KU-94-61. Also from 330 Material Logistic Plt at depot Maaldrift in Wassenaar. I love the sound of this V10 engine, you feel the vibrations in your stomach.

The 330 Mat Log Plt is also called the props department. Its an active army unit which keeps vehicles in drivable conditions and show up at family days, open days, reunions etc. It is based at Maaldrift depot in Wassenaar and this collection has nothing to do with the army museum Delft according to a SgtMaj of ''330''

Centurion, this one is from the cavalrymuseum in Amersfoort because the one from 330 Material Support Platoon was broken down.



Interesting, Lesley....

I have pictures of KX 15-10 (from outside ramp) and KX 15-20 from the indoor exhibit...don't recall or have pics of a KX 15-30. New addition, or was it hiding?

Best,
Doug

The "new" Centurion is not an new addition and has not been hiding
It's part of the mobile collection of the Cavalry museum

And only show's up at parade's, a military family day, or events like this
The remaining time it's in storage somewhere, so you will have to be lucky to find it

Well hidden it was indeed....I was there with an active duty escort from that base and was granted access to places definitely not on the public tour.

I can't imagine the Brits having any Cents that are more gorgeously maintained than the Dutch ones, but I haven't been to the RAC tank museum, so can't say for sure.

Saturday the M10 of Maaldrift was also parked at the motor pool. Unfortunately I could not find a serial number, there was no data plate in the drivers compartment.
