Before and After

Before: This is what a german Flak 37 88mm anti-aircraft/anti-tank gun looks like when it's lovingly cared for, in this case by re-enactors in the United States. This gun was at a display at Fort Knox last year (and I deleted the email, so I can't properly credit whoever sent me the pic...)

Hi-res here.

After: This is what one looks like that was buried by the Germans at Grafenwoehr in 1945 to prevent its capture by US troops. Ha-ha! Got it anyway!

This was dug up recently from under the former Graf Golf Course during construction work on the expansion of Graf.
