  1. Part 6 of a multi-part series. Some kind of goofy mutant and an America-mobile. A duck and a ferret. Saracen Ratel 20. Eland 90, aka the Noddy car. Eland 60, sans 60mm mortar. Crazypants Italian armoured car. I honestly have no idea which end is the front and which end is the back. Granddaddy armoured car. Our first attempt at a locally-made armoured car. This is where we caught the wheeled death trap bug.
  2. Part 5 of a multi-part series. This one's got the goods. Sherman and firefly. Early crusader. Early Valentine. The British really went through a phase where they slapped 2 pounders onto everything. Father. Son. Holy ghost. Comet, aka Hipster Centurion. Centurion, aka The entire History of South African tanks post-WW2. T-shirt cannon Churchill. Combat engineers get no respect.
  3. Part 4 in an ongoing series. Entrance cannons are a universal theme for museums. Lord knows why. German AT guns get their own niche. Dear god but the '88 is huge. Pom-poms! I wasn't joking when I said that the area between the two Halls is packed with artillery. Misc naval guns. Remember that time when the Germans inexplicably re-bored a Russian field gun and used it as a much more powerful antitank gun? This one also has authentic battle damag
  4. Part 3 in a multi-part series. Anglo-zulu era Boer war era. Assegais and throwing spears. African and Indian weapons jumbled together. African daggers and knives. San arrows. WW1. The ballistic vest on the top left actually caught one in combat. Percussion brown bess! This has been C&Rsenal - South Africa edition. This has been Forgotten Weapons - South Africa edition.
  5. More from the Joburg war museum/museum of military history. The planes are fairly well-known, although there are a few surprises here that you guys might like. Warning: lots of blurry photos ahead. All from the Brink Hall. There's also a Hawker Hartebees lurking around in the background that I couldn't find an opportunity to photograph make an illustrative diorama of. Engines, including a certain teutonic failure-engine lurking towards the right of the first picture. This is probably the first exhibit you'l
  6. The Joburg war museum (now Ditsong museum of military history) is a bit of an odd beast. Located right next to the Joburg Zoo, it's sort of small and kind of schizo in terms of content. It's also partly a monument to the fallen, partly a conference/events venue and partly a warehouse for all the odds and ends that the country has collected over the years and isn't sure what to do with. Anyway, I went there recently with my son and brought back tonnes of photos. These will be dumped around the forum in the appropriate places (tanks, planes, big guns and small arms), with this thread
