Military Review

Our memory. Tank Museum in Kubinka. Part of 3


So we got to the final part of our story. To "cars". True, I had to divide the exhibition in half, too many photos for one material. Therefore, in this part there will be England, France, the USA as representatives of the anti-Hitler coalition, and those who were on the other side will be placed separately.

1. United Kingdom.

Armored car "Daimler" Mk2

BTR "Saracen"

Cruising tank "Cromwell"

Light tank "Vikkers-37"

Light tank "Scorpion"

Universal BTR

Armored car AES mk2

Cruising tank "Comet"

Self-propelled bridge "Valentine"

Medium tank "Centurion", modification "Shot" for Israel

Medium Tank "Centurion", Mk10

Armored car "Panhard" AML-245С

Armored car "Panhard" AMD-35D

Light tank "Renault 35"

Medium tank S35 "Somya"

Universal tractor "Renault"

3. USA.


Medium tank M46 "General Patton"

4. Sweden.

Though they haven’t fought anywhere, the neutrals, but Tanks have.

Medium Tank Strv-74

The main tank Strv-103B. The original thing. They call it a tank. Only crazy. Swedes, what to take with them ...

        Well, unless you consider that the Swedes:
        - variable clearance
        - two control places, which allowed their tank to equally quickly move and maneuver, both in attack and in retreat
        - automatic loading

    Two identical photographs: “Medium tank M51 Super Sherman. Made for the Israeli army,” and “M4A2 Sherman. So who is who? Thanks for the photo, very interesting. I’m waiting for the captured Fritz and their allies.

      The correct one goes above. SuperSherman has a bigger tower (I'm talking about the back of the head), because a 105mm gun, a completely different mask, and, unlike in the wrong photograph, a molded case were pushed into it. But, again, such a case, like ordinary Shermans, is not for all Super Shermans. For what reason, Americans in WWII jumped from the welded body to the cast and vice versa, I was not given to understand.

        Different factories made different buildings - so different technology. And the choice of a factory for an army depended on ... a senator! Who punched his own - such tanks went!

          About factories, it’s true, about senators not at all. The whole thing is that in the midst of 2MB, the US Army and the Allies needed a lot of tanks, all the hulls were cast and welded, and the cars with cast hulls (less shell-resistant) were tried to leave serve in the United States. And after the war, it was these machines that became the basis of modifications for the armies of the Third World countries. At that time, Israel was one of them.

    The museum is lovely.
    But the cover plates were created by an "effective manager." Errors in the title, as in yesterday’s article. The name of the armored vehicle should not be translated into Russian either: "Ferret", "Winner".

      However, they translate there.

    Where Mk.5 English is not a cannon-machine-gun tank, but a rare model is a hermaphrodite tank. And that's exactly what they were officially called! One sponsons gun, the other-gun.
