Tiger II under restoration in Full
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 am assembling the shots from Full as we speak.

I still have to post-process pictures from Burgdorf (25 tanks) and Schaffausen (4 tanks). I should be able to visit the collection in Wildegg in the near future as well.

Hi,

After my last visit in juli 2012 with Massimo the volunteers made a big progress!

For pictures look at "Bildergalerie"

Massimo, could you check the two M7B2s of the museum and get their serial numbers, please?

As far as I remember, neither serial number is visible. But I'll give it another try

In the past I've just looked at the same location as the M4's serials, without results. I'll check them again.

Latest, good news on the Kingtiger:

- They are reassembling the suspensions and the whole running gear
- Engine is in Poland for restoration, should be back at the end of the year

It's worth noting that the transmission remained in Full.

thanks Massimo. It seems to be a bit low for an M7B2..

I am afraid I wasn't clear on the post above. The M7B2 on display has s/n 117.
Just to be clear, it's this tank:
www.flickr.com/photos/...4088553191

The Museum also owns an M7B2 wreck:
www.flickr.com/photos/...4088553191

I wasn't able to take a look at this one, since it's not on display. I'll give it a try in July.

The Museum doesn't owns any additional M7s that I am aware of.

Hope it will help

Massimo

I was thinking the same, but I am 100% sure on the number, it's perfectly readable, very clear, no way to make mistakes.
Could it be an M7 updated to B2 or all the B2 where made from scratch?

Massimo,

I understood that you referred to that tank. A such low SN should fit with a very early M7 with radial engine and a riveted lower hull. These tanks were built on M3 Lee chassis :


The M7B2 displayed at Full should be built on an M4A3 chassis. I only know 4 M7B2 serial numbers, but they are all in the 4xxx range.
