About has been created by Trevor Larkum of Armour Archive to provide information on preserved tanks around the world. It was initially built using the content from existing Armour Archive publications, including Preserved German Tanks 1: A7V to Panzer IV, Preserved German Tanks 2: Panzer V Panther to Leopard 2, Preserved Tanks in France, Preserved Tanks in Russia, and so on (these publications are available as paperback books from Armour Archive).

The first books to be put online were Preserved German Tanks Volumes 1 and 2 (see the links at the top). Then the first chapters of Preserved Tanks in Russia (covering the Kubinka and Moscow collections) and Preserved Tanks in France (covering Normandy and the Saumur armour museum) were added.

The site went online 8 June 2008. Since then a large number of tanks and collections have been added covering many countries of the world, including UK, USA, Canada, Netherlands, Brazil, Italy, and so on. This work is planned to continue until all preserved tanks (i.e. those no longer in military service) have been recorded.

Bovington Tank Museum   
At the end of last month I was able to spend a day at the Bovington Tank Museum, and so catch up on the latest changes going on there.
The new 'Tank Story' hall was looking to be nearly complete, although it doesn't open officially until early next year. The new tank display arena is already in use, and I saw a brief display of vehicles there (since it was school holidays) including a Chieftain Stillbrew getting a good run.
I'll post full details with photo's as soon as I have it organised.
