Late to the party: Yugoslav Somua with 6 pounder fitted
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.

Came across this pic of a captured Somua used by Tito's partisans fitted with a 6 pounder gun from an AEC mk II/III armored car. Anyone know of another pic of this beastie, possibly from the front of the vehicle? Interesting nevertheless! Regards, MK

Dear Colleague,
I'm sorry, but I need to confirm your suspicions, because the other photos are unknown. Conversion allegedly took place in an unknown factory in the town of Sibenik.

I got this picture from a fellow, but it seems to raise more questions than it answers...

The tanks Somua of the Yugoslav partisans - see mailer.fsu.edu/~akirk/tanks/ yugoslavia/yugoslavia.html

Quote: One, possibly two, of these vehicles were captured by partisans from the Germans. The vehicle had it's turret removed and a British 6pdr gun installed.
