Full Militärmuseum
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.

I want to share with you a funny story about Wim, aka "The Nostradamus of tanks" Shocked

Wim and I first met in Full in 2012, that day we managed to take a look at the Museum's workshop were they were working on their newly acquired BMP-1. Back in 2013, that's pretty much what happened:

12:00 AM Massimo: "Hey Wim, look, it's the BMP-1 running, the same one we saw last year in the workshop"
12:02 AM Wim: "If they keep driving it like this, it will go back to the workshop very soon..."
02:40 PM The BMP-1 broke down on the off-road area. The engine was dead
02:55 PM An M-113 towed the poor BMP-1 away

On my video you can see the BMP-1 and, at the very end, the moment it was towed away:

I think there is a lesson to learn here, next time Wim suggest you to drive more carefully, you better listen to him Laughing

The tractor is easy: Oshkosh M911.
The little French truck is a Simca-Unic-Marmon-Bocquet MH600BS.

You are welcome!
Edit: The SUMB has remarkably made appearances in mainstream movies, like Bad Boys II...

And I remembered an incident I was called to during my Army days when an M911 T-boned an old Opel Ascona, fortunately without injuries to anyone.

This is the last id missing. It's a Saurer truck, from the look it seems a model from the thirties. But I am unable to find the exact id:
