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 Egypt   
My thanks go to Ian Holloway who contacted me, having seen the item on Preserved Tanks in Italy, and provided photo's of preserved Italian and other tanks in Egypt. This prompted me to start a new page and it can be seen here:

Meanwhile I have continued to work with Massimo Foti to track down vehicles around Switzerland, and we have managed to make great progress there:

For example, here's the Panzerwagen 39 in the Thun SHP collection:

Closer to home I have continued to work on tanks around the UK, and early results can be seen here:

The highlight for me so far is the excellent Muckleburgh Collection - highly recommended!

In addition I have made a large number of code improvements to the website, including listing tanks previously seen at each collection, better formatting, information on factories, etc. I hope you like it.
