I'm compiling information on museums with Axis WW2 equipment on my site, the Axis History Factbook, and I'd appreciate any help with additions (text or photos) or corrections to the material.

The museums section can be found at http://www.axishistory.com/index.php?id=56

Thanks.

(I hope Victor & Co don't mind me posting this here)

There is a link, right here in the main page of this Forum, for the National Military Museum in Bucharest. By the way, Romania was one of the main players in Axis for 3 years and 2 months.

Regarding German equipment, inside the building there is a little section with captured German portable equipment, like several types of rocket propelled grenades. Also, among others, there are control instruments from the Tirpitz battery installed in Dobrogea.
Outdoors, in the military park, I guess should be also some bigger stuff.

Last Sunday I visited Camp Borden (about 100 km N from Tornto, Canada), to snap a series of detail photos of the Hetzer tank-killer, for a Czech friend of mine, who is planning to publish a book about the Panzer. Reportedly, this particular exhibit is one of the very few surviving original units.

My first impression when I saw the Hetzer among the other tanks was: "man, it is SMALL!"
To illustrate this, I placed the photographer nearby the exhibit. :D

Small means a smaller target,cheap to produse and not many crew inside=simple.

Guys, it's a trick.

The photographer is a big guy (2,50m tall ) :lol: that why the Hetzer looks small ;)

How is it possible that the photographer was not behind the camera? :P

Dénes, is this an original ex-german Hetzer or it is an ex-swiss one?


BTW, nice beard...

Yes, this exhibit is one of the few original Hetzers left.

It's an early-produciton machine (W.Nr. 321042), built at the BMM Plants in the so-called 'Protektorat'.

Here is the web site of the museum, where you can take a virtual (incomplete) tour:
http://www.borden.forces.gc.ca/cfb_borden/...um/museum_e.asp

Yes, I made lots of photos of the exhibited armour once there; however, they are not sorted.
