Armor in Italy
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.

Very nice...appears to be an offshoot of Pierantonio Farina's excellent Ferrea Mole site:

www.ferreamole.it/

"Ferrea Mole" is roughly "Steel Mountain", I gather. Me likey. Wink

This subject reminds me...

Anyone know if any of the Italian Fiat 3000 tanks have survived anywhere in the world?

What is the LWS? I know the site says that picture is at Aberdeen but if it is it is over 20 years old (The concrete pads were put in in 85-86)

I'll admit I don't know what an LWS is and therfor don't know if it was ever at Aberdeen. Sudden flash - is the LWS the German amphibious vehicle similar to the American LVT?

Landwasserschlepper or something to that effect. It was a large German tracked amphibious vehicle with a boat-like hull.

That vehicle wasn't there on my first trip in 1977 or any later trip or I would have taken a photo of it, so the picture must be older than that
