By the way, the military vehicle museum in Malmköping has one of the largest collections of manuals. I'll see if I can take a few pictures for skalman during this summer.

Best regards/ Daniel

A superb museum is the "Automuseum" at Bad Oeynhausen in Germany, west of Hannover.It's exhibits include: a StuGIII found in a Leningrad scrapyard in the 90's,various tank parts from PzIII,PzV and jagdpanzer IV's and various "dug-up" items from the old wartime Belsen training area.Complete vehicles include a kubelwagen,schwimmwagen,an SdKfz9 ARV,a horse drawn field kitchen,mortorcycles and the most beautifully restored Sdkfz 251 halftrack I have ever seen.Other items are remains of a P47 and a JU88 nightfighter,a U-boat engine,the turret of a PzIII command tank,various field optical equipment,Flak guns (88 and 37mm),T34 tanks,various MiG fighters,helicopters and believe it or not, the Kaisers personal limosuine from 1913.Fantastic!

Also, if you're in the area the panzer museum at munster(near Belsen,not the city)is a must! :D :D :D :D

A good place to see some Axis equipment is the Tilbury Fort show in Essex,UK, every August.

This has a wide range of AFV’s and associated vehicles from across the years, plus re-enactment groups-Allied & Axis.

This is a group or collection rather of different historical air wings around the US, but based out of Texas. They have over 150 allied and axis aircraft, with over 100 of them fully operationable. I know for sure they have a Bf-109, the last fliable Heinkel 111 bomber, as well as Folke Wulf's and Junkers planes. They travel around and do air shows all over the US. They also have several museums but I'm not sure where they all are.

They've changed their name to Commemorative Airforce though.

BASE BORDEN AND OTTAWA MUSEUM

Post by THE AWFUL EGG » 28 Mar 2003 08:02

HAVE BEEN TO BASE BORDEN A FEW TIMES AND MOST RECENTLY FOR A GERMAN VETERAN'S MEMORIAL SERVICE(SYLVESTER HASSE/COURTESYOF KAMPFGRUPP NORDEN). I CAN VOUCH FOR THE OPEN-AIR MUSEUM AS A CLASSIC COLLECTION OF MANY COUNTRY'S ARMOR. THE PANTHER ausf A IS MY FAVORITE AND HAVE TAKEN MANY FOTOS OF IT. AS FOR OTTAWA, I WAS THERE IN '74 AND REMEMBER GORING'S STAFF CAR,A SPITFIRE AND THEY USED TO HAVE A PzIV WHICH WAS CUT AWAY IN VARIOUS PLACES,HIGHLIGHTED IN RED PRIMER,SO INTERIOR VIEWS WERE POSSIBLE. I DID NOT SEE IT LISTED ON THEIR WEBSITE.

All the War museums in the Netherlands :
http://www.warmuseums.nl/

The Hurthgenwald museum in Germany, Vossenack.
http://www.militaerhistorie.de/Exkursio ... useum.html

YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS, the museum is not that great, but the fact you're in the middle of Hurthgenwald, were Thousands of Americans and Germans died around dec. 1944. The forest itself is the best museum to find, much has been left untouched, Kazemats, Siegfried line, Chains from Tanks... (and if you look carefuly... much much more...)
... like this helmet, I found on our training camp VOGELSANG (only handfull km's away from Hurth.) (Yes I'm a soldier 8O )...

Why do we have a T-72 and a T34/85?

Did Canada fight the USSR and someone not tell me?
