Museum for german military technology

Good evening everyone! This weekend I visited the "Wehrtechnische Studiensammlung der Bundeswehr" in Koblenz. What's that? It's a museum where the german federal army tracks the development of military technologies. It's open for public, but of course, it doesn't feature the newest inventions ;)

But that's allright, because these new inventions don't bother me that much. I do care more for the older stuff :)
So tonight I'd like to share some pics about WWII big artillery beasts with you. Hey! Ho!Let's go!
