AFVs in and around Bangkok
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: AFVs in and around Bangkok

This summer I'am going to see family in Bangkok,
I know of a M24 at the Phalol Yothin Road near the entrance of Don Muang and the Japanese tank at the national monument.

There should be a M24 at the Ordnance Museum in Bang Sue in Bangkok.

Does someone know the adress / coordinates of this ordnance museum and other locations worth of visiting?

Is there an army museum with vehicles?

Regards,
Lesley

There should be no shortage of M41's on active duty. They come out regularly there during periods of "civil unrest" or threats of "extra-constitutional changes of government".

Whether you can get close to one without getting shot, I don't know.

If you could score some detail shots of active duty M-41's (especially inside!) you'd be the instant hero of the forum. Probably take a lot of kissing up and "pretty please" and appeals to an OIC in advance. That sort of things usually takes "contacts", of course. Do they operate a consulate in your country? I notice you mention "family"...knowing a current or retired mid-level....senior officer can be a remarkable door-opener (worked for me in Brazil). It's all about who you know, sometimes.

There's quite a few of the Dragon MkIV-based AA vehicles lurking around Bangkok. See P-O's lists (British tankettes, light and medium tanks)
