lets start the Japanese relics list, breakout those pictures
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.

Here are several more Japanese tanks these come from Akira Takizawa in Japan. Is Shumshu Island, Kuril Islands, Russia a different place than Shimushu Island, or another spelling for the same place?


I had a look on Google looking for Shumshu and Shimushu, it seems to be the same place, spelled Shumshu in Russian and Shimushu in Japanese. I will do a .rar file with all the photos of jap tanks I have, during the week and put it on the web.

Well, here are the photos I was able to find for the moment. Photos of jap tanks in the Pacific Islands are very hard to find.

http://the.shadock.free.fr/jap_tanks.rar

If someone can't open this .rar file I can put it in .zip too, just ask.

Do you know where this one comes from? It doesn't appears on Neil's AFV register.

It belongs to the Oregon Military Museum. They got it off a bombing range in the 70's. It has been is storage ever since. They started doing restoration last year. He has several post on the G503.com in the tracked area showing it being restored.

Here's a early image.....

Yes, that's this one which is being restored. I was looking for it on the AFV register at Wilsonville, Or. and I didn't find it . I didn't think to look at the Oregon Military Museum, where it is listed indeed. Do somebody know what the Museum will do with the wreck?

According to the museum website, it is in Clackamas, not Wilsonville.

Well, I think that this tank belongs to the Oregon Military Museum which is located at Clackamas. But it is currently restored by Steve Greenbreg at Wilsonville.

Well, at the risk of slicing this too fine, is the restoration being done in Wilsonville? - or does the guy doing the restoration just live in Wilsonville?

I figure by looking at photos that it is being done on Oregon Military Museum grounds.
