Bovington
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.

Hi Massimo & Pierre-Oliver

Thanks Smile

I've been lurking for a while Smile

Perhaps you could introduce yourself for the benefit of other members? You seem to be keeping good company in Massimo and P-O. We have a forum for that purpose, or you could just open a new thread and say "Hello".

Welcome

Welcome Megashorts! I've long been an admirer of your pictures.

It carries an early version "topfblende" and the gun looks like a KwK 39. They are both strong signs it's an original Hetzer.

One of the episodes of Combat Dealers is about this vehicle. It shows them buying in the early mantlet and using it to replace the later one it had fitted. Conversely, they give information on its chassis number which IIRC implied it was an early build.

Thanks for posting the link of 2014 photos. I was there, it was a great show, but as a visitor you do not get this close so many of the photos are better than reality.

Rod Cadman told me that Bruce has got a correct gun for it, not the one that is fitted in the G-13s.

Really? I found it very boring, long-winded compared to the last years. And no special Tanks around the arena. So skipped Sunday and shot some rifles/pistols, drove a T16 on public roads and fired an old 2 pounder canon.

Was the Hetzer the real thing or a disguised Swiss G13?

I had the chance to meet a veteran of the 11th British Armoured Division at Tankfest (in 1944 he liberated the city where I reside now), so this was really worth the trip !!
