First off, let me say thanks to those who suggested that I check out the IWM while in London.

I went today and all I can say is awesome. I literally had my breath taken away as soon as I walked in a Jagdpanther was staring me right in the face. Lots of tanks (Sherman, Grant, Churchill, Matilda, Daimler) and numerous pieces of artilery.

For anyone who's going to be in Lond, it's a must see.

Quite offtopic, but this would be a nice place to visit someday. Not the official site of the museum, but a really nice set of pics of the vehicles on display there. They seem to have got even the really rare ones, Maus and Mörser Karl especially.

In here, Finland, we only have the Armour Museum of Parola. Quite a lot of tanks used in Russian-Finnish front, but not much heavy armor. Rather the more common tanks.. KV-1, T34, ISU-152, Stug III-IV, PzIV, Sherman, T26, T28, Vickers (the one T26 is based on), Renault FT, BA-armored cars, some british armored cars, armored train and stuff like that.. Some modern day vehicles too, BMP-1 and such. There are also lots of different anti-tank guns and weapons, like heavy bazooka (called recoilless rifle in us/gb?), Panzerfausts, anti-tank rifles and such. Anyway, a nice place to visit once a while, even tho there aren't that many vehicles. I'm still always astonished by the size and looks of the tanks there. Visited there maybe 3-4 times. Also, what's really cool about the museum is that you can get really close up to those tanks. Most of them are not fenced or surrounded by "don't touch" signs. So, If you happen to visit here, it's worth checking.

[edit] damn, the link pointed to the mainpage instead of Kubinka Tank Institute -section.. That's what im talking about. Well, most of the vehicles on the page are from there anyway.. [/edit]
