SAHARA - SLOVAKIA 2011

Post by panzer marder »

somethin about this event ...
SAHARA offers military machinery to the younger generations as well. You can meet a variety of criminalistic experts from the Slovak Police Department and displays of modern military equipment of the Military Technical and Testing Institute placed in the wonderfull surrounding of the Military Technical and Testing Institute – Záhorie, which is unique in middle Europe, as it resembles a desert.

This area has been used as a facility for military equipment testing and research for a long time. In WW2 the German Wehrmacht took advantage of this unique natural surrounding to prepare their army and equipment for the conditions of Africa. It is this exceptional terrain that made us name this wonderfull happening – SAHARA. It is beeing held with a great deal of success on the occasion of the Slovak National Uprising and this year it will be held from 26.8 to 28.8. 2011.

SAHARA is the place to be for all owners, enthusiasts and fans of military veterans, that can actually test their equipment under extreme conditions. The participants compete against each other in many categories according to the equipment they are using. Each competition is honored with an award. The competing machinery will origin from the whole world and will include wheeled technology, tracked technology and special technilogies from the WW2 together with modern vehicles.

SAHARA is ment for military history clubs which represent their activities in period camps and actual WW2 combat re-enactments.
