G-13. The state of the register
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.

Thanks Don. I didn't listed Ft Knox's tank since it's well know and I had no new or additional info (see first message).
Pierre-Olivier's PDF remains the best reference you can get on surviving Hetzers/G-13s

You've got a picture of the tank in Vugelles, that's great!

Post subject: Re: G-13. The state of the register

I did a quick trip to Full today (my third visit this year!) and saw G-13 M-78011. It was missing since summer 2008. In 2009 I asked around and they told me it had mechanical problems, in July 2010 it was still missing and I was somewhat worried. Today it was there, it just came back from a walk, with earth and grass among the tracks. It's definitely alive and running, in excellent shape.

I've been to Bastogne today and the Hetzer/G13 of the Brussels museum is now there.
I had a close look at it and found on the glacis what could be a serial number: 126. Has someone found a number on this place (in the red circle).

I quickly checked a bunch of my G-13's pictures (not all of them) and I can't see any number in that area. But I'll take a note about it and keep checking.

M-78192 is now in Schaffausen, it replaced M-78029 that went to Burgdorf. These tanks are still owned by the Swiss Army, who loan them to the museums.

MAssimo,

I corrected this in the last version of the PDF file that is now online.
I don't understand why the G-13s are moving around in Switzerland, is there any reason?

Pierre-Olivier

I guess there is a reason, I just don't know it.

Here you can find 8 hi-res pictures of it. Be aware it's a 80 Mb file!:

The PDF already contains a good shot of this. But I am posting them just in case
