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.

I've updated myself and the engine installed in the Tiger I did indeed come from the V2 KT. That engine suffered a catastrophical failure during initial running tests and the block had to be replaced. It's that block that I've heard came from the Jagdtiger.

It's a somewhat oversized radio antenna's support.

Luchs. I was told the interior is in excellent condition and, most likely, it wouldn't be too hard to turn it into a runner:

What is the device on the side of the hull? Smoke grenade or something?

Thanks for contributing Win. That shot dates back to November 2005, right?

I've heard that the donor vehicle was in fact the Jagdtiger.


It looks like the Jagdtiger still has an engine. But that doesn't necessarily means it's not the donor:

The Tiger131 website does state that the engine is a 230. There's some discussion on the HMVF about the chances of getting either of Bov's KT's running. The ex-Shrivenham example is definately engineless, being noted as having concrete blocks replacing it (I assume so that the suspension in loaded properly to make it sit level).


It didn't have concrete blocks (or filled in as some sources stated) at arrival at Bovington. All automotive components removed on the Shrivenham Tiger were scrapped and the engine cut open (sectionalized) for educational purposes. I've heard that the donor vehicle was in fact the Jagdtiger.
