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 USA   
I can't believe I haven't posted for a year - it's not that I haven't been busy developing the site, rather that I've been too busy doing it. Anyway, I'll try to post more often, beginning with a catch-up.

From August last year to January this year I worked on updating the status of the Patton Museum at Fort Knox, particularly the changes caused by BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) and the movement of vehicles from FK to Fort Benning:

In parallel I added entries for Fort Irwin, Mississippi Armed Forces Museum, Lewis Army Museum and the Patton Museum in California:

Between them these have helped fill out the America section, though there is still a lot of work to do:
