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 copy this from another thread, to try and keep all the info inside a single place.

Things I saw for the first time in 2011:

- 24 mm Panzerabwehrbefestigungskanone 1938
A very cool version of the 24 mm for bunkers

- Berna 2VN
Swiss heavy truck

- Centurion M-78778
Swiss Centurion, there are now 3 on display

- Entpannungspanzer 65/88 M-78669
Swiss recovery tank. Museum got it in 2010

- M47 wreck outside the workshop

- M113 G Pz 63 M-73955
Engineering version. Arrived in 2011

- M113 Kdo Pz 63 M-73652
Command version. Arrived in 2010

- M113 Kdo Pz 63-73 M-74439
Same as above. arrived in 2011. People can visit the interiors and seat around too

- M113 Kran Pz 63 M-74616

- Rotinoff Super Atlantic
Museum had this since 2003, but wasn't on display. It now has an heavy trailer with a Centurion on top behind it. Very cool!

Museum had it since 2004. First time I see it on display

All in all, the Museum keep getting better

What is that vehicle with the big gun just to the left of the AMX 13?

AMX SPG is one of the four vehicles acquired for trials (see r/n with leading zero), another one is in Thun:
www.preservedtanks.com...oryId=6430

It was a cosmetic restoration, most interior is missing (info from the Museum)

LTL-H came out of the workshop just in time. You can see they were in a hurry by the missing rear r/n Smile
The tank has a new paint job, that matches the one used by Thun SHP. External fittings are better too. Not sure about the interiors.
