Hello from Vienna,
time for another large update. Reworking pictures went faster than expected. With this update I have uploaded all Steyr 680M variants I currently have on file.
The site is working a bit shitty this evening and I hope that everything has been processed finally. I do not see certain of my previously loaded pics as the site hangs in a sort of loop. Hope, you have more luck and nothing has been damaged and lost...
Then it is time for some exots
Stalwart Mk II
Finally I have discovered a “new” Leopard 2A4, which has been transferred to the Military Museum Vienna already
I hope you like the pictures, Werner
this update is dedicated to Austrian (and Czech) technology and kindly notifies you to the following updates:
I also added some new pictures to the Pinzgauer SAN, Pinzgauer 712K and Pinzgauer 718K gallery.
this evening I have a "small amendment" for you.
I added pictures of the MAN 12.240 truck with Swap Body. Not the sexiest truck alive, but in the current inventory of the Austrian Armed Forces.
I have added galleries for some of the different versions
I assume this cold warrior is more interesting:
Praga V3S with 130mm rocket launcher RM-130 (M-51)
and finally I added some new pictures to the Dodge M37B1 gallery.
I hope you like the pictures a bit, Werner
My plans to publish an update per month vanished very soon…There are lots of reasons, but I don’t want to bother you with excuses. At least there is an update now online and it is about „Rädern und Ketten“ which took place between 2. - 3. June 2018 in the Museum of Military History in Vienna.
I could only attend on Sunday, missing the first tank show. In my opinion there were less people as usually. A (personal) indication was the fact that they still had “Panzerbier” in the afternoon. Normally it’s sold out already at noon. Again, there was some rare stuff to see.
Unfortunately my camera jammed before the afternoon tank show and I had to continue with my mobile phone. GNA GNA GNA!!!
It was convenient to visit a temporary exhibition about selected missions from the Austrian Armed Forces between 1955 – 1991. The illumination is surprisingly good, so acceptable pictures are possible, even without a flash.
As there are still some uncertainties in conjunction with the new European data protection law in regard to publication of pictures with persons I want to ask you to contact me if you want to have a picture deleted.
All the best from Vienna, Werner
Servus from Vienna,
it was my original intention to upload something g “civilian” this time but there are too many pictures and so less time to select them properly. As some military pictures were already selected it was easier to prepare them and therefore the “Bundesheer” section received some updates.
Hope you enjoy the pictures, Werner
