    No mention of the weapons being WW2 vintage that I could find, perhaps a modern day terrorist cell cache?

    "But they didn't realize the size of the arsenal the 62-year-old pensioner had amassed: up to 60 kilos of explosives including nitroglycerin, 50 guns including rifles and submachine guns, 60,000 rounds of ammunition, crates of hand grenades, rocket-propelled grenades and mines -- enough, in short, not just to obliterate Becherbach but also to take a small country by force"

    The locals call him a Militaria Freak!.... they haven't met some of you on here yet obviously hahaha

    Hello-war weapons would include military munitions like grenades, rocket launchers, MGs etc of any vintage-would think it more likely to be ex Warsaw pact stuff from the vast stocks pretty much abandoned after the fall of the Wall in various Eastern European countries.

    'The barn also contained machine guns, hand grenades, munitions and an old military vehicle.'

    Anyone know what vehicle it was?
