Warstuff Newsletter
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: Warstuff Newsletter

I've just read about this in a newsletter from Warstuff.com - it's an SU-76 recovered from the Danube, and now on its way to Vienna:

translate.google.com/t...&tl=en



Warstuff.com itself is a new site selling militaria. It's not big on vehicles, but it does currently have a nice M8 on sale for £34k:

It fell off a pontoon bridge in spring 1945, the Su was found whilst repairing the bullwark on the river.

There is a German board where you have to be a member to see photos, they have 25 High quality shots of the vehicle.

militaria-fundforum.co....php?f=117 Its German language only.

Interesting they're finding it now. I recall a few years ago during my travels in 'Urp that there was quite a drought and all kinds of stuff was being found in the Danube because the river was down so much.

Hi Trevor

The history of that Sherman (SN 57556, RN 30104238) is well known ( the recent history that is). It was saved from a Dutch molotov cocktail range.Moved to be part of the Poteau museum until two years ago. Then bought by a private collector in Turnhout (Belgium). As he already has another M4(105), a grizzly and 3 Stuarts, he sold it. More about it you can find here
