Gunfire site - Brasschaat

The WHI Gunfire Brasschaat site houses a large collection of vehicles and equipment, either armoured or not. These vehicles and equipment items were mainly used by the Belgian armed forces in Germany. The collection provides an extensive overview of the various weapons within the Belgian armed forces: field artillery, anti-aircraft artillery, infantry, cavalry (tanks-recce units), military engineering and logistics. The objects mainly date back to the years following upon the Second World War, a.k.a. the “Cold War”.

The collection also counts several precious items predating the First World War or from the inter-war era. The WHI Gunfire Brasschaat site moreover displays an ensemble about the Belgian army’s light aviation section, as well as a unique collection of Belgian military uniforms.
