For the Record: Tanks in Luxembourg
Source: http://tele.rtl.lu/emissiounen/de-journal/3020949.html Thanks to Rollux for this one. Hello everyone, even though the state of Luxembourg is a very small one, it is not completely without tanks :) A passionate military vehicle collector of WW2 and post-WW2 era, De Guy Retter, acquired a Centurion Mk.3. The tank was produced during the 50′s and 60′s. It served in the Swiss armed forces until 1993. Due to moisture accumulation, the Rolls Royce engine had starting problems but fortunately there was a Sherman tank to give a little help. Over 50.000 Sherman tanks have been built but only 30 running Shermans currently exist anywhere in the world.
