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 Italy   
A busy month - and two bits of good news:

Firstly, with Massimo Foti, who made the major contribution to Preserved Tanks in Switzerland, I am currently working on Preserved Tanks in Italy. Although it is still a work-in-progress it is shaping up well so it's time to make it available for everyone:

Roma M14/41

Preserved Tanks in Italy

Keep an eye on it over the next few weeks as it is developing fast.

Secondly, the site recently underwent a major upgrade. The most obvious changes are that photographs are now displayed at a much higher resolution when you click through to them, and also there is now a specific Profile page for each tank in the database that contains all the information for that tank in one place. As an example, here's the new Profile page for the Tiger II at Full mentioned in a previous blog:

Swiss King Tiger

More upgrades are planned for the new year.
