a quick maybe hard question
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: a quick maybe hard question

A friend of mine is thinking about buying the King & Country Elephant, but it is listed as being in Battle of the Bulge markings and he doesn't want any "creative" markings in his collection. we know they were used in the East and Italy but neither of us can ever recall seeing any reference to any at the Bulge. Yea? or Nay? I figure if any group in the world would know it would be ours. Thanks in advance

Without solid documented proof I would have a hard time believeing that they were used at the Bulge. I don't think I have seen any claims that they were used anywhere in Northwest Europe. As AJ2 said all claims I have seen have been for Eastern front and Italy. Aberdeen's Elefant was captured in Italy.

Nope. No Elefants were used in the Ardennes Offensive.
