Hello from Vienna,
 

this time it's time to dedicate our attention to some armoured engineer tanks which were available in the Austrian Armed Forces, but never used, and to another recovery tank, which is in use since 1974.
 

I am talking about the Centurion engineer tanks:

Dieses Exemplar steht im Panzergarten des Heeresgeschichtlichen Museums in Wien. So wie das Fahrzeug abgestellt ist, sieht es aus, als würde es eine Schneise durch den Dschungel des Panzergartens treiben.

This example on display in the “Panzergarten” from Museum of Military History/Vienna. From this perspective it looks like this vehicle would clear a path through the jungle proliferating in the Panzergarten.

While these beasts are fading away in the sun, this little helper is still very busy:
