The Netherlands 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.

When working through the various lists I found something curious

Apparently there are 2 types of M4 Sherman tanks that have identical painted on vehicle numbers

Now people may say, that could happen because they are painted on

Agreed, however both tanks are in the same museum

At the Cavalry Museum at Amersfoort they have an M4A3(105) Sherman
Vehicle number: 30126810

However%20they%20also%20have%20an%20M4A1(76)W%20E8%20Sherman Also%20vehicle%20number:%2030126810

They are not directly in line of sigth of each other because there is an building in between, but the distance will only be about 400meters

Michel

Interesting, two Leopard 1Vs. I did know of one at Maaldrift, and another at Heesch of which this last I didn't know if it was property of the Delft museum. It seems I have to convince my boss that I have some business to do in the Amersfoort/Soesterberg area. At Soesterberg the vehicles are located in the old helicopter hangars on the Dutch side of the base. At the former US side only some aircraft from the air force museum are stored

Regards,
Lesley

P.S. Next week I'am at the Bergen (DEU) training area, if it is possible I will take some photos.

Now for the guy's who are interrested in the depot Soesterberg

An link to the site (again Dutch only) however with picture's of the vehicles there

www.legermuseum.nl/leg...01071.html

For all my fans Laughing Rolling Eyes Laughing below the text translate to English.
_______________________________________________________________
The warehouses for the new military museum in Soesterberg been formally in operation since May (2009).
In recent months many special vehicles have been brought there. The area is already well filled!

At the opening of the depots were plans for the new museum explained.
The new museum is a merging of the Army Museum in Delft and the Military Aviation Museum in Soesterberg, and opens its gates in 2013 on the former airbase Soesterberg.
At the museum the meaning of the armed forces in societies past, present and future is made clear in an innovative, public-oriented and interactive manner.
At the museum there is going to be a large outdoor area for exhibits and events.
The depot is in the last few months already filled with a variety of special vehicles.

Okay, I did some research today with an friend and we have not found the M22 yet, but we did find something else.

The Dutch Army Museum in Delft will close it's doors in 2011.
It will move to an new location, being the former (US) airforce base Soesterberg.

They are building there an complete new museum.
This museum will be an combo from the former Army Museum Delft and the Airfoce museum already based at the Soesterberg airbase.

According the plans it will open in 2013.

Because of the closing of the museum they started moving the vehicle's from various depots to an new central depot at Soesterberg.

There are some picture's of the vehicle's at this new depot and the M22 is not on 1 of them.
However there is 1 another central military museum depot at Maaldrift, Wassenaar.

So most likely the vehicle is still at that depot.

Michel

P-O

I have some additional information about the collection of the Army Museum Delft.
Apparently I'm still missing some of the bits and pieces there.
For example, they have 2 Flakpanzer Cheetah instead of 1.


Both sites listed below are Dutch only!!

First link is to the complete collection of 3D objects, 3D meaning everything that is not paper.

www.collectie.legermus...08237.html

Second link is about the M22 Locust

www.collectie.legermus...iatheek&q=

P-O

that picture make's me wonder about the list you have about AFV in The Netherlands Wink Wink

Because an nuclear wessels on a AMX-30 chassis is not something that is part of the inventory in the Dutch museums.

Unless you are planning to exchange it for an YP-408, we have some spare's left.

P-O, concerning the M22 Locust.
So far I did not find the exact location of it, however this tank is part of the collection of the Royal Army Museum Delft.
And because it is not in the collection in Delft, it probably will be in one of the museum depot.
Even the M22 Locust website doesn't know where it is.

Michel


anyway it confirms 2 things.
It is confirmed to be in Netherlands, and it is part of the Royal Army Museum Delft (I was not sure about this).

thanks for your reply !!

P-O

The problem with most of the military installations in The Netherlands is that posting at the fence will not work.

The only visible part of an military installation is the main acces gate and maybe something that is passing by.

Here you have the fence and then they have planted half an tropical rain forest between the fence and barracks Rolling Eyes

And because The Netherlands is an very flat country with no hills or mountains, half the planted rain forest is enough to shield the base for curious eyes.

P-O, concerning the M22 Locust.
So far I did not find the exact location of it, however this tank is part of the collection of the Royal Army Museum Delft.
And because it is not in the collection in Delft, it probably will be in one of the museum depot.

I also try to see "what's inside" by looking "behind the fence" (sometimes the vehicles can be seen from the outside), but that may be quite problematic if a military asks what you are doing/looking at there..

best,

Michel,
