My battery died at this stage and I was losing the will to live. My husband has many more photos that I am sure he can access if anyone wants a specific tank. I was astounded by the number of tanks. Made me think what people could have achieved if they had put their minds towards peaceful pursuits. I always moan about the advancements in science and engineering but have yet to see a domestic automatic system to clean my windows !
Thanks for posting these wonderful pictures. Peaceful pursuits? Without a war there are less credits for inovations and many war inventions are used for peace time when hostilities are over . The other way also works even if the inventor meant initial peaceful pursuits. Von Braun and Einstein come to mind for one way or another.
Great pics, thanx!
I had the good fortune to attend the dedication ceremonies of the Panzer Schule Museum at Munster as a guest of the Museum.
I knew the owner of the Auto u. Teknik Museum at Sensheim and drove up with him.
It was then only partially complete, the headquarters & theater building and only one of the tank museum building being finished. This one had only German armor in it.
There were a variety of armor parked around the area waiting for other buildings to be built.
We also got to tour the shop area where battle field reliks and misc non operational tanks were being rebuilt as training projects for the Bundeswehr student panzer mechaniks.
For what ever reason I have never managed to get back to that museum in all my many trips to Deutschland.
