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.

We saw this already last summer. As far as I understand, it's on loan from a private collector and now on display:

... that's correct. The truck came from the Overloon-Museum.

One interesting thing to report. The Museum acquired a Merkava I, it's in Haifa right now, waiting for delivery.

It has changed a lot since I was there (can't even remember when exactly). Do they still have the two M7B2 wrecks? I should really go back there soon.

The major change happened in 2010, when the new hall was added.

There are two Priests, one is fully restored, the other one is a wreck and sits outdoor, near the workshop:

Let me know if you visit the Museum. I may be able to join you

Hello,

I visited the Full Militärmuseum yesterday. Sorry Massimo, I would have liked to do a visit with you, but I didn't know when I would arrive in Full yesterday, I was in a hurry, as usual. I started the visit at 3:30 PM, knowing that the museum would close at 5:00 PM. I was really in a hurry, so I focused mainly on US vehicles. Here is what I have found :

-The G-13 Hetzer that comes from Pré Giroud and that is stored under a tarpaulin is number M-78036
-The M7B2 wreck stored outside the museum is SN 4488
-I've not seen any serial on the M7B2 displayed in the museum
-The M3 Half-Track in the museum is an M3A1, chassis number ITM 29581, RN 4014598
-The M16 Half-Track MGMC is chassis number 276565 as best as I can tell
-There is an M47 Patton there, which is Serial 11818
-The M3A1 Stuart is SN 9939
-I've seen a Swiss Schneefräser built in 1943

pics to follow.

P-O
