Mephisto, the only remaining German A7V tank from World War I, kept safe in a bubble in Australia


Our president has just alerted me to an interesting news item from Australia. See

The Germans only made 20 of these tanks and this is the only survivor. If you are planning a holiday to Queensland make sure you take time to visit what must be the rarest tank in the world



  1. Yes John it was in June (03/04) , but I didn’t get there. I will find out if and when it takes place next year.

  2. Even that is quite impressive. By the way Paul, is there a model show at Munster this year?

  3. Now that I would really like to see, the closest I’ll ever get though is the replica
    in the Panzer Museum Munster.
