    Great images of an iconic and very prolific machine Nick

    I recognise turret number 300 from the Soviet Memorial in Tiergarten Berlin.

    I always thought it a little contrived that the other of the pair is number 200

    When there was still a Soviet guard present they used to go totally nuts if anyone went anywhere near them. So much so that the Berlin-Wachpolizei had to have a presence there to keep tourists etc away.

    I recall one night a drugged up idiot driving a car up the steps The Soviet guards threatened him with bayonets and broke his arm. Wonder how drunken teenagers urinating on war memorials in this country might feel about that

    Anyway, that's another topic!

    Thanks for the tanks

    Regards

    I'll look out the pic's of the T34/85 that I obtained in Bosnia in 92 and shipped back to UK if I can. I believe it is in Bovington now.
