Panzer III : brought back to Norway
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.

Interesting! An early Ausf.J with 5 cm L/42, but without spaced armour.

P-O,
What is the story behind the vehicle, it looks to be in great original condition, where has it been hiding all these years? Who is selling / trading it with Norway?

Bing Translation:

This chariot is indeed owned by the Norwegian Government, which had given it to Caen city museum with other relics from the war, in the 1980s.
Norway retrieves today because it has never found its place in the displays of the Caen Museum. It's a rare piece, and so valuable, because most of the German tanks were destroyed and scrapped after the war.
For the record, it is not really representative of the battle of Normandy, because already obsolete in 1944.
On the other hand, the Germans used this type in Libya and to invade Norway where this copy had been abandoned.The Panzer III tank was designed during the late 1930s and used extensively during the first phase of the second world war. It was developed to engage enemy armour, while the Panzer IV, which was contemporary to him had been planned, to provide gunfire support to armoured formations.
However, with the appearance of tanks allies better and better protected, the Panzer IV supplanted the Panzer III as a main tank of the Wehrmacht. The Panzer III was totally outdated since early 1942.It is the third and final piece that starts its return back to Norway in one week.Wednesday morning, the 25-ton tank was transshipped onto a trailer for a long journey to Norway where he should find place in a Museum
