Last weekend I saw two A-34 Comets, one Charioteer (all those ex-Finnish vehicles auctioned last year) in the Czech Republic. One Comet has been already dismantled and is currently restored, second one and Charioteer are waiting for their restoration.
Have seen two ex-csiabg Cromwell hulls, partly dismantled...
Have seen sweet M-14 HT wit Maxson quadruple MG turret, a strange mix... sporting US marking.

All those spotted in Smrzovka.

P-O,
What about the LT-35 runner you had in your file? I thought Lesany already had one?...

I am told this is an outright transfer (like Saumur's St Chamond & Schneider), rather than a loan. May have been an additional incentive for the missile defense treaty, LOL...

Neil


Neil, we have LT-38 runner in Lesany, your LT-35 will be totally overhauled to running condition, hopefully.
An YES Smile , there were some rumours about connection of this transfer with MDT ... lol rofl

Sorry to see it go. Thanks for the pics P-O.

I can understand. Can you understand armour fans in the Czech republic are happy now?
Thank you, chaps.

I think that you're talking about their running LT-38.. they definitely don't have any LT-35 on their territory.

Hell Neil,

than ks gor the information. That's right, there is no LT-35 on the CZ territory for the moment. It's quite amazing to see how the Aberdeen vehicle collection is progressively going to other countries (Germany, CZ etc..) because a lot of the ex-Aberdeen vehicles were donated or are on loan..

I think that this Lt-35 was most probably given to the tank museum at Lesany.

P-O

- Neil_Baumgardner
P-O,
I understand the Aberdeen LT-35 has been given to the Czech Republic. I'm trying to confirm the details, including what museum it is going to. I am a little annoyed it appears the Ordnance Museum was told the Czech Republic didnt have one... But I have all this second-hand, trying to get confirmation of the exact details...

Neil

Hello Lesley,

I don't know why but I can't see any text or picture on the link that you provided. The cause may be that I'm not registered on this forum..

Shermans Flamethrower, maybe someone could help? Some other photos are missing, have a look at the end of the file please.

Hello P O,
you can add one more Czech Cromwell to your list of survivors.
She is in private hands, still without engine and with turret made of concrete plates on metal frames - but the aim of those guys is taking her to running order!

This is ex CSIABG Cromwell Mk.V, later used as surface coalmine excavator, heavily modified, stripped of turret and electrically powered (you have already added hull wreck - that was "as found" status of her sister).

Hello Massimo and Dontos,

Massimo, I'll add that the G-13 at Morges was given to a French museum and add information about its new location as soon as I get it.
For the Pz IV at Bovington, you may be right.. I don't know about the exact type... I'll try to see what I can find but I'm not really a Panzer Ausführungs specialist.

Dontos, thanks for the 2 pictures. They seem to be both quite old and I wonder if the FT-17 on the colour picture is still there. I'll also try to find more about it.

Pierre-Olivier

Moving to Pz IV, the one in Bovington may looks like an Ausf. G, but it isn't. It's, most likely, an upgunned and up-armoured Ausf. D.

If you look at the shape of the front hull and the commander's cupola you would recognize it as an earlier variant.

- the_shadock
welcome on the board and many thanks for the update. Any idea where this tank could be located?


I was there on a sunday trip and asked, they weren't able to tell me the exact destination, they just told me it was going to be restored and displayed in a better way in a french museum (it was stored outdoor in Morges).

You may try to write them directly:
www.chateau-morges.ch/

Hope it will help

Massimo
