Armor for the Ages: PzKpfw II

AFTA pz IIArmor for the Ages website has created a new page and photo gallery for the Pz II tank that is kept at the National Armor and Cavalry Museum collection at Fort Benning GA.  This particular vehicle was captured by US forces in Tunisia in 1943 and was kept at the Ordnance Museum at Aberdeen Proving Grounds for many years.  In 1989 it was loaned to the Auto and Technik Museum in Sinsheim Germany where an automotive restoration of the vehicle was performed.  After over a decade in Germany, the vehicle was shipped back to the US.  A more complete history of the vehicle can be read at the AFTA website here.
