Nice ones Grant, they had some pretty interesting metal there, pity the other team couldn't muster some too, there could be a reason for that though. ;)

There should have been a Panther and a Panzer IV somewhere around, as I saw them load up and set off from Saumur the week before D+75...

The "M4" outside the airborne museum is an ex-French M4A4T, the A4 never being used by US forces in Europe and the A4T being re-engined post-war with the Continental radial replacing the A57 multibank.

 

The Saumur Panther was probably on its way to Bovington Tankfest.

That Trabant in "sandy" base paint, sure must be from Africa Campaign

One of their base colours. Maybe the manufacturers had an alterior motive! A better example spotted in Zossen and an example in the other popular base colour on display at the kitschy Trabiworld in downtown Berlin across the road from Goering's RLM building.

The Trabant would have been a nice wee car, if it wasn't so awful.
