Three Amigos in Lesany
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.

By looking at the pictures I realized T-34/76 m1943 “Lidice” wasn't visible. P-O's PDF list it and I took pictures of it in 1998.

It's currently under reconstruction into the running condition.


Little update on this one. I was watchin TV news today and look what appeared during one of the news Smile



Looks like it's almost ready Smile

I guess, I will keep this nice thread as a news topic for the Lesany museum.

A few days ago, representatives of several European tank museums had a gathering in Arsenalen museum in Sweden during which they've agreed on closer cooperation between their institutions.

There were representatives of Arsenalen, Bovington, Munster, Lesany, Oslo, Parola and Brussels military museums. Other museums respresentatives promised to attend the talks next year, which will take place in Münster and in two years in Lesany.

And one of the results of these talks for the Lesany museum is
acquisition of Sav m/43 assault gun and 8cm Skoda vz.19 anti-aircraft gun from the Arsenalen.

Not a long ago, the museum also managed to get Scania Vabis 1664 engine for their LTP.

So, there was a rumour for some time and today it has been confirmed. VHÚ got LTH tank as a gift from the Swiss MoD an is in Lesany since today. The Director of the VHÚ also expressed desire to get one of the TNH tanks from Iran, since relations with this country are improving recently. Negotiations about it have not begun yet, though.

As for the LTH tank, so far its without engine, but VHÚ folks wants to get one and make the tank a runner. According to the article, the Swiss MoD already renovated the tank thus is in excellent condition.

Not yet. I wonder if they will move it to the Army Museum Žižkov in Prague, as they did with LTP for about year. If not, pretty sure its gonna be shown at the Tank Day in August. I'll be there, thats for sure Smile

From the painting it looks like this one from Burgdorf:

LTL-H M-78587 by Massimo Foti, on Flickr

But maybe the two tanks still outdoor in Bure were recovered and moved to Burgdorf too?
Hopefully Chris will join the discussion and bring some info. In any case, we will know more pretty soon.

Patrik Krista told me it comes from Bure. He got the info from someone at the Czech museum. But you're right, it looks like the one in Burgdorf.

VHÚ just posted article about the LTH on their webiste including some pics. And you guys were right, it comes indeed from museum in Burgdorf and its registration numbers is M-78587. Its gonna be on display in Lesany since 1st July, so I guess I'll make a trip there already before the Tank Day. Also from the pics its quite obvious that the tank has been renovated only on his exterior. The interior still needs a lot of work to be done, before it hits the road on its own Smile

This tank used to be a gate guardian in Thun for many years. I am not surprised it still need plenty of work before it runs again.

I've found some recent pics of the LT vz. 38 from Lesany which has been in reconstruction in the last two years. It got a new camouflage, the bigger road wheels (from Hetzer?) are gone and frame antenna has been added to the side of the hull. Now, it should look as the first serial LT vz. 38's from the original order by the Czechoslovakian Army.
