Presume the fix was done before i got on the thread - but from the first time i opened it the piccies were present. The old iron is in much better condition than most of the stuff Aberdeen had when i was there 9first in 1966, then in the early '70s).Did you read why you can see them now?
That building must have a substantial floor! Great photos.
Well, i am, and i expect many others.Hi Clyde,
There was no sign of any railway gun or the monster mortars at Kubinka that I saw. Im pretty sure the Gustav railway gun never lasted the war although I believe there were some or one spare barrel(s) found for it. The thor 60cm mortar may have survived but wasnt at Kubinka or any of the places I went in Russia. There was an armoured train but no rail guns. Ill post some more pics of some of the Soviet hardware.......lots of T-34 76 and 85 along with IS and KV tanks. Place was a bit difficult to find but well worth the trip. Took about an hour to get from Moscow. Metro to the train station then a bus from train station to the museum. There is a military base nearby so they check all your papers when you come to the museum and you can hear them firing cannons off in the background. I also went to the Great Patriotic War Museum, Central Armed Forces Museum, and visited Volgograd (modern day Stalingrad). Lots of history there with Pavlov's house, the flour mill, and the Red October factories etc etc.....i can post many more pics if people are interested.
Looks like somebody got a flanking shot on a Tiger I, not sure what with. Maybe an 85mm, shooting AP shot?
So proving ground test. Still looks like AP shot, not sure of size, but LOOKS about right for a 100mm (on further consideration, looks a bit larger than an 85mm when considered next to the people). A bit small, I think, for a 122mm.This was testing against the side armor, notice the 82mm mark above the guy in the center for 82mm thickness.
I seen this picture before but have no idea on the location or time.
OK - confirms North African captures. Be in the East - Egypt/Libya - since there is an M3 and we didn't take any M3s to North Africa when we finally went in November, 1942.not much info found it here.
