    Only saw the Borden Flakpanzer work today.
    Faintly astonished by it. More power to them as I'd love to see that fully functional.

    Only three more to go, and that's a UK-based Zug.

    I saw the Flakpanzer when I went to Borden museum last summer and also when they hauled it to the Aquino tank weekend last year as well. (Which I would recommend to Ontario locals! I might try to go for their WW2 weekend in th fall.) It was a neat part of the trip to Borden as my brother-in-law and I had no idea it was going on - we had wandered around the vehicles located outside, and were looking for the museum entrance when we went past the shop doors!

    What a pleasing thing.
    Can't understate the spectacular logistical support that went in with Western allied armies, can you.

    I read recently where German prisoners in Normandy were awestruck at the innovations, the 100% motorized formations and the sheer number of vehicles. Indicative of the effects of propaganda and perhaps a myopic view of the world, they all expected the Allies to be using horses, like them.
