Caption to photo in Tankograd A7V book 2nd edition.
Permalink   


Maybe one for Mad Zeppelin. The A7V book reprint (2020). Page 96, the last photo in the book. An A7V stuck nose-down in a ditch. It's credited to the Jochen Vollert Collection, but I can't see a caption anywhere. I've looked over and over again, and it might be staring me in the face, but I can't spot it. Any help?

Is that 562 Herkules?
It is another Batch 2 tank with a Batch 1 front. That is another thing I failed to notice before. Luckily I haven't removed the rivets on my build yet.

Hi Tanker!
Nice pictures! Thanks a lot! I have been there a couple of years ago as I used to be a Truck Driver. Unfortunately I forgot my camera...
If someone want to visit that place I can recommend this restaurant, not far away:
https://www.truckfly.com/fr/poi-details/la-campagnarde/9694/
In that restaurant I asked for the A7V place and an old farmer drove me with his tractor to the area. But it was late and the sun had gone, so I couldn´t see a lot
Later that night I had a lot of wines and several Calvados with the friendly farmer... He gave me a local magazine, which includes a photo of the tank:
