Fort Knox Range ID?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

From Google Earth, it's easily found, the one just west of Lebanon Junction. I think that puts it in the Cedar Creek, St Vith, Hackett area, if my memory hasn't completely gone Tango Uniform. I think that was known as "Range Area E".

Thats YANO Multipurpose range. Its the primary tank gunnery range.

That photo is taken from around the area of the range tower.

Spent some time on that ridgeline.

Yep, that's the one I identified it as from Google Earth, just west of LJ. Didn't know the name. Name might have changed since I was active in '71-'73 there. Yano's CMH was awarded for actions in '69 and range might not have been renamed when I was at Knox, variously from '71-'73 (with a detour to SEA for some of that time).
