Bovington
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.

Sorry, no Pz IV interior Crying or Very sad
I know you are looking for those, I took plenty of exterior shoots, since that Pz IV is really an unique beast, but no interior.

.... uhm ... no Wink
Besides the picture above is showing the front of the vehicle Mr. Green


I know it's the front. Wink
I wasn't clear, I wondered if there were other differences

Massimo


good thing that is clear now Laughing

Well the design and location of the towing pintle is the only real difference I can find.

The front of both looks the same.

- Bovingtong spare track link; not there at OVerloon however mounting points are there
- Overloon has a cable reel at the right hand track guard; Bovington reel missing however mounting point is there
- Overloon has 2 black-out lights; at Bovington missing however mounting points are there
- Bovington vehicle is missing part of the exhaust after the muffler
- Bovington vehicle is missing the 2 smaller rear lights with protective cover located at the last mounting bracket of the track guard, however you can find the mounting bracket on either side

The crosses are probably personal tributes laid on Nov 11th, Remembrance Sunday in the UK, to honour fallen comrades in all conflicts. These may not be related to the individual tank but more likely to comrades from a Regiment that the tank has been painted to represent or who fought in a similar vehicle.


That would make sense.
