Romanian Military Museum: Shermies, MkIV's, an' stuff....
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 wondered about a fording kit, but didn't see any provision for the intakes.


Through the turret Doug - like most tanks...

Cool

Did they fit a "tower" like we had? (probably not, on ones that old, I'm guessing...)

Or was it just for 'deep wading' like the sheet metal extensions on Shermans?

I received an update on this lend-lease Sherman to the effect that this was fetched up some years ago out of the Prut riverbed. If I learn anything more about it, I'll let you know.

"Airlines announce fare increases in anticipation of spike in Mid-May travel to Otopeni Airport"


This is very thoughtful for locals (like in-the-city locals), but of limited value apart from that. Let's consider how photography had harmed visitation...since my first visit, we've had two other members of this forum go, and I've returned. Somehow, my piddling efforts are not keeping visitors away in droves. This is a sadly misguided policy that is shared by more and more museums. Pictures increase visitation, not discourage it. They give people a reason to want to go themselves. They see what's there, and wish "if only that guy had gotten better views of this."

I have a local contact going on those days - Unfortunately he's only been bribed to take a single image of everything on display so I can plan for future bribes er visits....

Just got in the images of the artillery exhibits at the military museum from my contact in Bucharest.

Have to admit there is stuff there that I cannot recognise Crying or Very sad

I'll post some when I get chance to reduce them a little.

Cool

The Service Truck interior, '09. Better access for pictures, but mainly because it's deteriorating before our very eyes in the out-of-doors (especially being of a wooden van construction) so there is better access for more clear photos.

Seems like a better place to have been in the Winter time.

Doug,

Did you have any more pictures of the Pz IV bow MG barrel sleeve?

Cheers,
Rik

I visited the Museum just a few days ago. Doug suggested to append my pictures to this topic, so that we keep the discussion centralized.

Here is the modified T-55:



More shots will follow, it just takes time to post-process all the RAW files. If you are looking for a specific subject, feel free to ask and I'll see if I have it covered.
