Tanks in town
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.

yeah, for sure this time I'll be disguised into a Russian soldier, hope that there will be at least one T-34/85.

Here is what the uniform looks like, I'm the tall guy with the PPSh and the German hand grenade :

No,sorry I'm not

I like the AFV's and everything around it, however dressing like an soldier from the past Neutral

Like to keep it to vehicle's for the moment, so getting one is my goal for this year
Perhaps I will change my mind when I have an vehicle, to complete the picture

Are you part of an group that are representing an certain Russian unit?

Michel

Hello Michel

On saturday everything is going on on a local motorcross track called Bois Brûlé in Ghlin. On sunday most of the armour will away on the ride around mons. There are two stops, one in a village and the second in a field where the battle will be (again). So for the second day you have to be mobile and willing to face the traffic jam, best way is to hitch a ride on a Afv but that requires to know someone Wink .
If you are short on time I would advise Saturday.

As a reenactor, I participated twice to the Sunday ride.
The first year, I rode on top of the Pershing turret and the second year, I stood on the engine deck of a M18 Hellcat up until the fighting in the field.
Fortunately both days were sunny and hot. But I can say this has been a physical effort since none of both tanks are confortable and further more the engine deck of the Hellcat was extremely hot jut after one hour of driving. This made our position very difficult to stand though these were extremely enjoyable and quite a kind of privilege for somebody who knew nobody at first. I just asked and because my uniform just looked accurate, I was allowed to climb on board.
This year, I'll be there for the seventh time.

On Saturday we would have more time to discuss and take nice pictures. Usually, Sunday is a quite busy day and we have less time to discuss.

Michel,

I would really really don't mind to be offered a ride on the M7B2.

Besides the Soviet uniform, I also have an US Infantry WW2 uniform reproduction + M1 Thompson reproduction, do you think I would better have it in the car, just in case?

Pierre-Olivier

Maybe I was a bit to fast, at this moment we have no clearance to participate in the ride on Sunday. Last year we did get the okay on saturday, so I'm not yet woried. But to be clear on that, without that clearance we can not take part in the Sunday ride. But if we ride, one free place can't be a problem so you're welcme P-O.
