Post WWII Vehicle Photos
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.

Cool is not the word. More like fascinating. I have never seen anything about the MAUS in terms of real photos or anything real at all. Any word on what caused that level of damage?

The Germans used self-destructive charges to blow them when they had to leave them behind

From the remains of various vehicles the Russians rebuild 1 example that is still present at Kubinka

Some info can be found here
