Open House AAR (LST/R.M.P./Patton Museum)
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.

Here are the German vehicles I saw at Richardson Motor Pool, you will notice that lots are covered.....







Uh.... No idea...

Neil


This last one looks to me to be a Marder III Ausf M hull - either missing the weapon or possibly an AA version? I tend to believe that is the former.

Sad to see all these vehicles like this. Between the Aberdeen collection and this one, the US could have one heck of a nice Armor Museum.....

Great photos - thanks for sharing - wish I could have been there for that one.

Neil,
That is the Grizzly that used to be in the museum. It was moved out so it could participate as a runner in events like Life of the Soldier.

Nice pics, AJ. I still cringe a bit every time I come to the motor pool and see all of those vehicles and guns sitting outside. At least they have some cover, but it is not good to have them sitting outside with rodents chewing the wiring and building nests and who know what else happening to them. Crying or Very sad

This one deserves a close-up for Bob since it's a 17th Cav bird. Laughing


Hey! Who's the devilishly handsome pilot? Wink

Hey Don, would you believe I actually need the SN & RN of the museum's Ontos?

Neil


USMC # 226684 ( The RN )
SN: ?
Hull Stamp is 304

No Data Plate but I think 304 is a valid SN. The Corps seemed to use the USMC # as a means of ID.

I'm still trying to run down SN data on all the vehicles, then match with USMC# and any surviving Data Plate information.

Total vehicle #'s are the problem. There were 44 Prototypes built ( by my research, no hard figure seems to exist. ) 297 M50's were built in the production run. This is the total vehicle count. The M50A1 count is 176 (I'm not sure if this is an officia/accuratel number) of existing M50's. Thats the raw numbers as best as I can tell.

I'm still hunting for documents outlining/listing any actual vehicle build count and hopefully how they were 'counted'. Hull SN/ USMC #/ or what?...

Thats one of my biggest 'stumbling points' as of now.

Sorry for rambling on.
