More images from Parola-Part II....
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.

Parola, Part II:



Cavalry recon tank, IIRC:



Who doesn't love an armored train?





The "Money Shots"...

This Stug is a runner...I got into this thing in business clothes and didn't get a mark on me...I've been in five-star restaurants that didn't have kitchens as clean as this vehicle...
Incredibly complete..ranging binocs, full radio, earphones, seems to lack for nothing.











Fortunately for them, they didn't leave any keys to the ignition in it... Wink



More stuff to follow.....

*green with envy* Great trip Doug. I'm ashamed that I, who live so close, have not seen this collection. I will sooner rather than later collect some favors and take up some old offers and see if I can't best you on it Smile

Thanks for the pics Doug. The first photo is a former Russian T-50, the second one is a T-60. Were the T-72 and BMP still there? I was there last summer, my Wife is Finnish so we usually go back every couple of years to see her family. It's really something to go there in June when they have the Armoured Brigade parade. Never been inside of the Stug though!

Cheers,
Jim
