Argunners Magazine received thanks to Marc Askat from 442 Explorations a view into a very incredible Hangar filled with World War II and Post-World War II Trucks, Tanks and Classic Cars. All the tanks and vehicles are part of a private collection, organized under UNIVEM – Paris Ile de France. UNIVEM stands for Union Nationale des collectionneurs de Véhicules Militaires.
The UNIVEM Paris Ile-de-France is a living museum, to keep the memory of a mechanical and historical past that deserves to be preserved.
They maintain and preserve (including restoration) nearly forty carriers, vehicles and tanks of which some are amongst the rarest.
