Righty ho, putting on my best anorak.

At 1.40, we've a Bf109F or G, an Hs129 & an Fw200.

1.48, He111 & Bf110

1.53, Do17/215, Ju52

2.13, Ju88

2,42, it's the Fw200 Condor again. Looks to be in good condition, must've been captured on an airfield (Stalingrad?) , none of the ones seen so far are crash wrecks, no bent props & paint in good nick.

2.50, Fw189

3.14, Fw190

3.41, enough Bf109 to form a Schwarm!

3.53, a trashed Bf109

4.02, aha, a Hero of the Soviet Union, maybe Ivan Khozedub?

4.09, a Nebelwerfer.

4.20, leFH18 105mm

4.29, its big bro, the sFH18 150mm

4.58, looks like a Flak36 88mm.

5.17. Flakvierling quad 20mm.

5.26, a trio of big buggers, 17 or 21cm? K18 or Mrs18.

5.43, big stuff! I don't know what these are.

6.09, Italian L6/40 (One of them at Kubinka) & PzIII (Again, Kubinka has at least one of these)

6.18, Marder II with 76mmPak®

6.24, Hmm, not sure about that one, Hungarian Toldi?

6.29 PzIVG (One in Kubinka)

6.30 Pz38t (Another for Kubinka)

6.35, the Italian L6/40 again.

6.38 PzI (Beobacht version?)

6.47, a Frenchman in German colours! Somua S35 (One in Kubinka)

6.52, Emil Sturer, that is in Kubinka, only one survives & it was acquired in the snow outside Stalingrad.

7.05, Elefant, one's in Kubinka, the other survivor (Actually a Ferdinand) is in the USA.

7.14 Tiger1, probably the first one the Russian's captured. Didn't survive the war.

7.46, a swiss-cheesed Tiger1!

The film won't play past 9.01 for me, might be my crappyn internet connection going over its monthly limit!

Great film, great find!

Righty ho, putting on my best anorak........5.43, big stuff! I don't know what these are.

From one anorak to another -

 

just to fill in the blanks the big howitzers at 5.43 are 30.5cm mozdir vz.16 Czech built captured from the Czechs and Yugoslavia and in service with the Germans as 30.5cm Morser(t)(j) 638. Six were used during the seige of Leningrad and others were used at Sevastopol.

6.18, Marder II with 76mmPak®
is a Marder 3 the first version with as you say the Pak36®. There is a Marder 2 Pak40 shown in the background the Pz38(t) shown at 6.30.
6.24, Hmm, not sure about that one, Hungarian Toldi?
Yes it's a Toldi 1 (with a loop aerial) very similar to the Swedish Strv 38 hence the Bovington Strv38/40 was once finished in Hungarian markings:undecided: -the Toldi is also a survivor of the mass scrapping and is now at Kubinka.
6.38 PzI (Beobacht version?)
That is more likely to be a Pz1 muntionschlepper -which had a "carryall box" on the roof.
7.05, Elefant, one's in Kubinka, the other survivor (Actually a Ferdinand) is in the USA.
Other way round the short tracked vehicle at 7.05 is a Ferdinand the APG exhibit is an elefant -c/w hull mounted mg.
4.58, looks like a Flak36 88mm.
It's the 88s big brother a 12.8cm Flak40.

 

The missing section from 9.00 covers a brief over view of captured trucks, mortars, small arms, medals and unforms.
