English Russia Site. "Traces of the War in Minsk"
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.

Post subject: English Russia Site. "Traces of the War in Minsk"

Hi folks,
Today on English Russia site are posted some new photos of the "Stalin Line" Museum in Minsk, Belarus. Various Russian vehicles are displayed, from World war 2 to near present time. If you have a few minutes it's worth a look. Titled: Traces of the War in Minsk. I'd post some photos here, but they were taken by Nah-Valuyco. Is this display documented anywhere?

Another interesting source of photos or footage from Aberdeen and older conflicts (Korea, Vietnam) is youtube.com. There are many recently released films from "The Big Picture and "Combat Bulletin" which have extensive footage of armored vehicles. These are PAO type news reels released by PublicResourceorg. Try "Testing at Aberdeen" very good views of the test courses there and various prototype testing.

I think it's a T44. Notice the Engineer variety of vehicles too. There are ditch diggers, amphibians, and pontoon bridges. Nice selection in that museum!

Not only is it a T-44, but it also has the original track (most were rebuilt with T-54 tracks and starfish roadwheels) and the roadwheels are the pressed dish type instead of the more commonly seen cast spiderweb type.

I think T-44 is one of the most beautiful tank in history. But I never managed to see one in person Sad
