"The battleship Conte di Cavour on an exercise, after her reconstruction."
And what is actually burgerkrieg?
Interesting how it looks like pz II-III to me at least. The mg's look like the driver had a hard time. Interesting phhoto. Thanx. Even the commander cupola.
I might be wrong but to survive the new Israel country used also other German military stuff like tanks to survive ca 1948 the Arabic nations' attack.
We have at least one bf 109 in Utti that I saw in the 1990's. Do not know what model it is to be honest but quite sure it was used since early 1944 against the Carelian isthmus Soviet attack to protect the German Stukas of Group Kuhlmey and also as a night fighter against Soviet bombers who had Helsinki as target.
That would be Me-109G-6/U2 Werkn. 165227, that is at Utti.

Nice group of planes but somehow I like the line of red crosses first.
Wonder if this photo is when they bombed the Abbey of Montecassino in Cassino, Italy in 1944?

Thanks, yes, I really like the Red Cross trucks! (I had edited that first link because it did not apply to my photo, but you may find it of some interest) I am a “stickler” for old Army trucks. I had a large die cast model when I was younger. Real hard rubber tires. I could kick myself now for ever selling it to a collector around 1980.
