Armeetreff Ostschweiz Kradolf
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.

The Stiker above belongs to the Länzlinger Collection. Max Länzlinger told me they just acquired an M8 Greyhound, it's in great conditions and comes from Germany

Massimo

Is the M8 in its original configuration, or with the Bundesgrenschutz mods?

I don't know. The M8 isn't in Switzerland yet. I am pretty sure it will be visible on next year event

First time I see this vehicle. It belongs to a Swiss private collector

Massimo,

I saw again in your album the very nice M3 Stuart in running condition, and so I started to list all the surviving M3 and M3A1 Stuarts. The PDF file may be ready within few days...

The M3 Stuart wasn't there. There were concerns about the availability of off-road tracks, so they kept the tank at home.
Anyway, there were plenty of vehicles and they plan to move to a larger location next year.

There were two half-track, Länzlinger Collection's M5 and this one. Could you please tell its version?

It looks like the standard M3 halftrack, for infantry transport ...

However I'm not a US halftrack expert Laughing

I came to the same conclusions but, just like you, I am not an expert in US halftrack
