Hello everyone, recently I had the amazing opportunity to go on a 10 day trip to Europe with my school to visit Canada's WWI and WWII battlegrounds. One of the side stops was at the Musee des Blindes in the village of Saumur, a tank museum housing over 880 vehicles. I'd like to share a few of the photos that I took because I know most people here appreciate tanks as much as I do. There's no possible way for me to post all of the pictures I took (well over 100) so if there's a tank that you want to see just say so and I'll see if I have a picture of one.

Fun fact: the Tiger II at the museum is the only functional Tiger II in the world and the museum takes it out in the summer and drives it around in a big parade every year with the other working vehicles.

I have a good idea what model of tank was in the pics thanks to this game. Thanks for posting the pics. Must have been a great trip.

It really is, unfortuantely we were only allowed an hour and a half inside so I couldn't manage to get to the hangars where they keep the non-display vehicles.
