Now we can see the pictures. I know the Jagdpanzer IV/ L 48 & the Sturmtiger used to be in Aberdeen's collection. I would bet the Brummbar and the Jagdpanzer IV/L 70 came from there, too. Nice pictures.

Looks like I lose that bet, at least as regards the Brummbar. The Panzermuseum's Brummbar, like their Tiger I, was built up from scrap parts. In the Brummbar's case, these were mostly sourced from the Musee de Blindes in Saumur, while most of the Tiger I's structure came from a scrap yard in Normandy.

Abedeen's Brummbar is now at Fort Sill, where many of the SPs seem to be going, since it looks like the Fort Lee idea is done.

I would highly recommend that anyone who goes to Germany make an afternoon visit to the panzermuseum. Besides the heavy metal they have quite a bit of Rommel's and Guderian's military artifacts as well as a huge number of WWII German uniforms. Well worth the effort and time.

After WWI, the Renault tank was immortalized as an antique auto Radiator Mascot. The Renault tank was the first tank with a rotating turret. Interestingly, the Japanese used the same tank in WWII because it was small and they could transport it to the islands they occupied in the Pacific. Several of these tanks are on display at Camp San Luis Obispo in San Luis Obispo, California.

How cool.

The Panther has a script "L", the unit insignia of the Panzer Lehr Division -- my dad's outfit.

I'll be over there this summer for a rifle competition, maybe I can make it up there to see the museum.
