Our plans and trips to military museums
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'm gonna be at this year's Lesany Museum opening event next month. There might not be many AFVs to see in display arena, as this time, it's dedicated to Praga V3S trucks, but hopefully they'll show some of the heavier stuff as well.

hello Massimo,

that depends what you call "worth visiting". 63 kilometers far from Amsterdam, there is the army museum in Delft, with 3 vehicles I really would like to have good pictures of :
-M4A1E9 Sherman
-Type 97 TE-KE
-GMC Scoutcar 4x4 Otter Mk I


I have put my photos of the Type 97 online this evening:

Location ID 11900: Royal Delft Army Museum



Let me know of you need copies of the originals. Unfortunately I can't find my other Delft photos.

I will be in Belgrade very soon. The vehicles in the Kalemegdan Fortress are pretty well-know and quality pictures of them are available. I'll try to get a better coverage of the artillery pieces.
Any special request?

Hope I will manage to visit the Aviation Museum too, but I am still not sure if I will have time for it.

Hi Massimo
Could you make some pictures of the SdKfz 250 for me ?
And look for a possible chassisnumber

A quick recap from Belgrade:

- The collection at the Kalemegdan Fortress is even better than I expected. I was already aware of each and every AFV, but the amount of artillery pieces was a pleasant surprise. It can't compete with Bucharest as far as variety goes, but in term of sheer number of guns it's almost there.

- The Military Museum's indoor exhibition is interesting, with uniforms, small arms and a few heavy weapons. Flash isn't allowed

- All AFVs and most artillery are visible to the public even whenever the Museum is closed

- There is plenty of space to take pictures. I only had to worry about the sun, since the weather was excellent

- The Aviation Museum near the airport is literally falling apart Sad

- Light conditions inside the Aviation Museum are among the worst I ever had

- Some unique Romanian planes make the Aviation museum worth a visit anyway

- FIAT G-50 and FW-190 are in the Aviation Museum workshop. It's not expected to have them on display for the next few years at least

Massimo

To Walter, Michel and anybody else that would like to join, I finalized my dates for Amsterdam.

So far I am planning to visit Delft and Amersfoort, more or less one day each (maybe less for Delft?). I choose those locations since they are easy to reach by train from Amsterdam, but I am open to other suggestions for alternative locations or transport.

Dates available are between July 5th and July 9th. I can pick any of those four days depending on your schedule and availability.

Personally I would say Amersfoort is well worth the visit, for the number and variety of tanks; Delft less so, if you could only do one.
