The scrapyard at Trun in Normandy is well known as the source for many preserved armoured vehicles. For example, it provided a PzKpfw II Luchs for the Saumur collection and Flakpanzer 38(t) vehicles for the Bayeux, Clères and Saumur collections. As far as is known, all complete vehicles and almost all spare parts have now been removed - mostly to Saumur.
