Preserved Tanks in Poland
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: Preserved Tanks in Poland

My Polish friend Rafał is making another trip back to Poland to get some more tank pictures for me, so it has prompted me to 'tidy up' the Poland part of PreservedTanks.com. It was one of the earliest parts to go online and I have since expanded the format, particularly to provide more information and photographs of the locations rather than just the tanks. This is it after the new housekeeping, with all locations 'finished off' and double checked:

Preserved Tanks in Poland

Tank Factories in Poland

The exception is the museum at Poznan (previously the officers' school). It looks like I barely started that last time, so I've got a lot more work to do on that one.

Polar - your Poland register was useful for my checking. However, I think I've found a T-34 new to both of us - see what you think:

I go to Poland every year for 5 weeks, hunting down vehicles that are all over the place, will track down some of my photos for you.

I've now written up the Muzeum Broni Pancernej at Poznan - I've added 11 tanks to the old list, plus about 60 photos:

The first of the completely new locations is done, the Soviet military cemetary at Wroclaw (Breslau):

Location ID 16200: Oficerów Armii Czerwonej, Wroclaw




It also takes me through another small milestone, with over 100 T34-85s now in the database, the most for any one model of tank:

Type ID 2400: T-34-85

AFAIK know the Leopard 1 marked as A4 in Warsaw is a Leopard 1A1A2 (PZB-200) or a Leopard 1A1A3 (SEM 80/90 digital radio's). Definitively not a Leopard 1A4 as mentioned on the sign in front of it.

Regards,
Lesley

Thanks, Lesley, I'll get to that and the comments in your email. I'm off to Norway on business tomorrow, though, so progress will slow down for a while.


Meanwhile, I've done Zagan, including the first M36B1 in the database:

Location ID 16405: Centrum Tradycji Polskich Wojsk Pancernych, Żagań



M36B1, 2xT34, T55, T72

I'm back from Norway. Lesley, I've added the serial numbers and other info from your email for the tanks in Poland. I've sent you an email with the details - let me know if it hasn't arrived as I'm having some email problems.

Meanwhile, I'm back to working on other preserved tanks around Poland.


Location ID 16420: T-34-85, Kunowice




Location ID 16425: PT-76, Lubrzwa




Location ID 16085: T-34-85, Sokołów Podlaski

More Polish-built T-34-85s:

Location ID 16080: Pomnik Bohaterów, Różan




Location ID 16090: Liberation Monument, Wołomin



Google's map coverage in Poland is pretty poor, but there is unusually a streetview of the last one:
