View Full Version : Inflatable Tanks
I'm wondering if anybody still has any of those dummy tanks and other stuff that was used to confuse the germans about the Normandy invasion.
That would be a fun thing to have in the yard.
Might be one or two in a Brit museum. The first couple of months after D-Day there was no further need for them to put together dummy equipment concentrations to fool German intelligence.
"...no further need for them..." Not in England, but they were used right up until the Rhine crossing by a unit specfically formed for hiding troop movements, etc. Very successful at it too. Read a book about it a few months back. Don't remember what it's called.
Doubt there are any inflatables left. The stuff wasn't made for long term use.
