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.

Preserved Tanks in Switzerland   
I have been very fortunate to have permission to add to the website a large number of photo's from Massimo Foti of vehicles at the Thun and Full collections in Switzerland. I have combined these with information from my original work on Thun, and photographs I took there in 1984, to produce a new section of the website:

For example, here's the King Tiger that was previously at Thun and is now being restored at Full:

If you have any information on these vehicles, or any photographs of vehicles there that are currently without photographs, then please contact me (trevor-larkum at In the meantime, enjoy!
