Bergamo. Parco delle Rimembranze
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.

the main gun really looks real to me, do you know if it is a reproduction or an original one?

I've seen a brochure from OTO Melara (who performed the restoration) saying the gun is original and was added by them during the recent restoration.
As you know, previously it was a fake, like the one in Lonate Pozzolo o Marsala.

I'm happy to read that an original gun was gathered with an original vehicle. Nice to see that spare parts are put together with vehicles that miss them.
