Panther Ausf.A salvaged in the Ukraine
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.

Finally!

Some more information on and pictures of the "mystery" Panther Ausf. A that was on sale at milweb a few years back.

www.detektorweb.cz

The heavily damaged Panther was recovered near the town of Spola, Cherkassy region in the Ukraine.

Now if someone could provide us with a proper translation of the text ...

Rik,

this is a mail I received some weeks ago.. it's quite surprising !!

"Did you ever find out any more info on the Panther in the Ukraine? Has that just been found? Is it still here? Do you know what website it was sold on? thanks!
Why I ask is someone is trying to sell me this tank, but I don't want it to be a scam, because I want to buy it. And I am set to go over where it is in May.
That is all the details I can give you.
thanks
chris"

What's the old saying "if you put enough monkeys pounding on enough typewriters eventually they would produce a Shakespere play"

Well it looks like we need either more time, more typewriters or more monkeys! Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Some people would argue we are hardly in need of more monkeys....

I'll see if I can recruit some help here at work later this morning, but Czech is one language for which I don't have immediate contacts. I'll see what the "overlap" with a couple of my colleagues might be.

"Polar" might have some skills in this area, being neighbors and all...

Well, it's no scam in the sense that the tank does exist. Buying it and getting it shipped is whole different ballgame though. Restoring this Panther A even though "complete" is a MAJOR undertaking, it has been completely blown apart and all major structural components (hull, turret, upper hull plating) are either twisted or cracked in many, many places or completely blown off (as in the case of the front glacis plate and right lower hull side).

What is the reason you tend to use dumb authomatic translator... There is a native speaker...

Translation is here:
Discover your own Panther
Although I have seen the pictures of this turret here in the article written by Bé?a, there is „complete report about this Panther finding… She was discovered in the Ukraine IVO SHPOLA (?????) town. I am not informed about the exact date of discovery but it seem to be not topical event,....there is zimmerit coating visible on the turret and the number „234“. Right hand side of hull with roadwheels, idler wheel, drive sprocket and complete track are visible in the pics. These parts only have been discovered and excavated along with turret.
I am not sure about version of this Panther but I suppose her to be Ausführung A or better G according to „V“ chevrons visible on the "working parts" of track links. Even the drive sprocket seems to be simplified variant.
I have borrowed all my books on Panther to my buddy so we could definitely assess the version in the discussion below (the article).


Hope this "decyphered version" helps...

Way back when I was at VMI the entire 3rd (Sophmore) class went to Ft Bragg for a several 'Orientation'. Part of the tour was the Green Beret presentation. You know the one from the beginning of the John Wayne movie where an A team spouts off all their skills and all the Languages they speak. At the end they asked for questions and one of the Cadets stood up and asked 'Is this typical of all A teams or is this a special Demo team? How many languages can a typical A team speak?" This was in the spring of '73, probably the low point of Special Forces capabilities with thedilution that Vietnam brought on. The A team Captain looked over at the Lt Col who was our 'Guide' The Lt Col paused for a second then said
'This team is indicative of what our desire is for all A teams. Right now there are more teams then we would really like who are only proficient in Four languages - English, Profanity, Southern, and Whorehouse Vietnamese" Rolling Eyes

He then explained - You are all due to be Army officers in just over two years. We said we would give you a realistic orientation this week and I won't lie to you. If you ask a question everyone here is commited to giving you straight answers.

Well after being off the flightline for almost 25 years my Profanity is getting a little rusty. Living in Maryland My Southern is border states at best, and I never leaned Whorehouse Vietnamese!
