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.

Post subject: Thun. Panzermuseum

Along the years I accumulated, literally, thousands of pictures from Thun. I am trying to summarize what's available over there into a photogallery on Flickr. At the time of writing I am not done yet:

And what a background for a museum! Any photos of the outdoor displays covered in snow?

Not all tanks over there can be framed with the Alps as background, but I like that effect. I am glad you noticied it.

I wonder how it can be covered by snow too, but in order to reach Thun I have to travel 4 hours. I am afraid it wouldn't be worth only for trying a few shots.

Thun offers more than a few unique vehicles. This is a Swiss Centurion that was turned into bridgelayer in England. Later on, based on this experience, the Swiss Army adopted a bridgelayer tank, but it was based on Pz 68 chassis. This remains a unique prototype:

Another alpine background here
Note also the coaxial 20 mm gun, it was kind of a trend in those days. Pz 61 had the same, but it was replaced by a machine gun during an upgrade
