  2. XM607, was the first Vulcan to bomb Port Stanley's airfield. It's now parked at RAF Waddington, by the side of the A15. The photo shows its engine exhausts, have their blanking plates, so is this when it was being moved for display?
  3. The Soviet's attitude towards their citizens, wasn't exactly one of care! The soldiers may even have been from a Shtrafbattalion, (penal battalion), so "Run past that tank, or I'll shoot you". The name is related to the date, all the surviving vehicles were remanufactured prior to May '44. So on 30th April, they're all Ferdinands, from 1st May onwards, they're all Elefants.
  4. It's an Elefant. It's an Elefant, as the name was changed on 1 May 1944, by order of the OKH. The post-Kursk upgrades (The most visible external alterations being, the addition of a ball-mounted MG 34 in the hull front,a new commander's cupola (modified from the standard StuG III cupola) for improved vision, re-designed armored engine grates (for better bullet and shrapnel protection) and the application of Zimmerit anti-magnetic mine paste, were carried out between January & April '44.
  5. The Valentine tank entered service in July 1941. The small trucks are Morris CS8s, towing 2pdr antitank guns. The 6-wheelers are (I think) Leyland Retrievers, towing 3.7" AA guns.
  6. I'm guessing that a pressed steel version, would be cheaper & also not requiring the use of a "Strategic" material?
  7. Interesting photos. Got a date for them? The tanks are a Cromwell (Reg 27ZR10) - probably a MkIV and a Centurion MkIII. The Universal Carriers on the railway flatbeds & I think it's an M3A1 Scout Car, he's sat on the bonnet of.
  8. http://discuss.glasgowguide.co.uk/index.php?act=attach&type=post&id=47936 I believe the lead vehicle is a Universal Carrier, marked for the 15th Scottish Division. Behind it, is a Loyd Carrier.
