This month we removed the last bogie set. Therefore we used a 30-ton jack that was placed between the hull and bogie set. We also managed to remove the left track idler. Now this widener is also visible.

The missing gun barrel has been reproduced. It's made out of a massive piece of steel, with a length of 1400 mm. Jakom shafts & rollers in Cuijk (, specialized in producing shafts and rollers in all sizes, produced the gunbarrel. Total weight 180 kg. In short time this reproduction gunbarrel will be welded on the originel leftover barrel piece that's still connected to the turret, so the barrel will have its original length.
