More photos from Pivka museum

Hello everyone, Alex78i, who sent me earlier the photos from the Bucharest museum, went to Pivka (Slovenia). You might remember that we had a while ago a bunch of pictures from there too, these however show the vehicles from bit different angles.

    • Wow, a whole 15 seconds scrolling down?? I’m surprised you retained your sanity after such a mind-breaking torment.

      Very nice pictures, keep ‘em coming.

      • its not about the scrolling, its about being proffessional (or at least trying to). that includes not throwing a bunch of big ass pictures right on the front. The ones that want to see them can click the article, while others who dont dont have to deal with them.
        also, seeing these pictures 5 times a day isnt anything exciting…

    • Submarine was never in use by Slovenian army. It was developed and produce in Slovenia, then it served in Yugoslavian army, it is back in Slovenia for a couple of years now.

    • Mhm, you can go in for an extra fee. But you get a special guide and he tells u all there is to know about it :) It’s really cool :)

      • yes you can go inside the sub, on a schedule basis + separate fee( i arrived there in time but i didn’t know about this till i reached to the sub itself and the last tour of the day was ongoing)

        anyway they told me that the guide is in slovenian language only….no english/french etc
        but i think they will still let you in just without the posibility to understand all you see :S


  1. Damn.. that “close the picture” system is wrong xD

    Can you change it somehow? It’s really annoying that we have to scroll to the lower-right corner just to press the X.. or am I missing something? Clicking on the side or Esc won’t work for me :P

    btw.. a tank [ M3A3 ] from SFRJ, lol ^^

  2. That M3 Stuart…….that’s an interesting hull design. Did they Ruskie-fy it or something? I’m curious about that…

    • That’s the M3A3 (Stuart Mk V in British service) variant, the final M3 version which was produced almost exclusively for the Lend-Lease users (mainly Britain and her Commonwealth, Soviet Union and China).

      • I guess that it’s one of those M47s given to Tito when Yugoslavia broke away from the Soviet sphere of influence, they were giving them for free to almost everyone, poor M47 didn’t get a lot of love in Murrica.

      • Ye, its an M47 and its called the Jackson, not the Slugger. It says so on the description in the museum.

  3. It’s a shame that M8 Greyhound is fittede with modern looking city-care-like tires, insted of some truck tires that at least resemble the original. Otherwise a real nice lineup of historical hardware.

  4. Something’s up with that gun on those Shermans. Could those be the ones modified for Kelly’s Heroes?

    • That’s an M4A3E4, a 50s upgrade of the M4A3 featuring a 76mm gun was mounted on modified M34A1 mount (the one of the 75mm Sherman, not the M62 one of the T23 turret), Americans didn’t have enough 76mm equipped Shermans to spare in the 50s to meet the requirements of their MDAP client states, which included Yugoslavia at the time, so they crudely retrofitted 75mm Shermans with 76mm guns.

    • Kelly’s Heroes was filmed in Yugoslavia. all of the equipment was given by the state including the half-tracks, airplanes, Shermans and Tigers (T-34s transformed to look like Tiger 1 for filming of Battle of Neretva)

      Yugoslavia was one of the few countries that could provide German, Soviet and American equipment

  5. What a nice looking museum, the exhibits look fantastic. Thanks for posting these.

  6. I not to mention my friends have been reading through the excellent strategies found on your web page and all of a sudden came up with a horrible feeling I had not thanked you for them. Those boys had been as a consequence stimulated to see all of them and have now actually been using these things. We appreciate you actually being very thoughtful and for selecting this form of amazing subjects most people are really wanting to learn about. Our own honest regret for not expressing appreciation to you earlier.
