Museums with Axis equipment

Postby Marcus Wendel » 30 Aug 2005 19:36

Hello all,

I have a section on the site that lists museums that include Axis equipment in their collections and I'd like your help with expanding that section.

Any other museums that should be included?
Additional information on the museums listed?
Corrections to the information listed?
Photos from the museums that I can add to the site?
etc

You can find the list at http://www.axishistory.com/index.php/ot ... -equipment

National Military Museum in Bucharest

http://muzeu.mapn.ro/

Unfortunately the website is only in Romanian and offers no method of contact. Not exactly a good thing for many non-Romanian researchers interested in wartime photos, documents, etc. Oh well, maybe something will be done soon. Here are some more photos.

No. 1 - a 100 mm Skoda model 1916 mountain gun and several other smaller mountain guns.

No. 2 - a captured 100 mm Bohler model 1940 mountain gun

No. 3 - the last remaining TACAM R-2 near a T-34 used by the Romanian People's Army

Some more pictures of some interesting Romanian guns from the National Military Museum in Bucharest.

1- "Resita" 75mm AT gun. Romanian built but it copies the German Pak 40 and the Russian 76.2mm AT gun, and Romanian canon.

2- Resita/Vickers M36 75 mm AA gun, the same rifling was adopted for the "Resita" 75mm AT, mentioned above.

P.S. Sorry for the quality of the pictures.
