What a good find, I enjoyed seeing how the A7V steered and how top heavy it seems when travelling across country and how it seemed to buzz along the road. An A7V would have been a monster rolling into a town, down cobbled streets, townsfolk of the day would think the Grendel was amongst them!

Is there a way to download the video? As it is in Flash.

I just right-clicked on the picture and was offered 'Download Video' as an option. It saved as an mp4, all 157.4 Mb of it.

 I just right-clicked on the video picture on the page which naxos linked to.  The attached screen shot shows the contextual menu which appeared in Safari on a Macintosh (though I don't see why that should make a difference - but maybe it does).

Another Bundesarchiv movie - not A7Vs but Mark IV Beutepanzers.

http://www.filmportal.de/video/nach-der-tankschlacht-bei-cambrai-dezember-1917

The scene in Berlin with the driver knocking over a streetlamp and the oic going ballistic is a crackup.

Regards,

Charlie

This is a great find, up until now I've known only about one film showing moving A7V - this was Elfriede cartured and tested by the French. This movie is much better - longer and of better quality. The real gem is Gretchen still as a "female" (this tank was the only "female" A7V). Gretchen became a "male" in May or June 1918, it was a "female" only in first two actions (St. Quentin on March 21st and Villers-Bretonneux on April 24th). Siegfried's first action was at Villers-Bretonneux, so this movie must have been filmed in late April or in May 1918.

Also thanks for beutepanzers movie!

Hi Charlie ! IMOHO, the tank knocking over the streetlamp was more probably at the Cambrai railway station, while attempting to get loaded on a train... The buildings have a typical french "Chemin de Fer du Nord" style.


Regards, Chris.
