Tank ID 1940
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.

I've been looking at the 'snub nose' .50 cal. What the heck is it?

Definitely a .50 reciever/barrel combination, but I've never seen a snubby like that.

That cavalry plaque on the turret side looks way too ornate for a typical service vehicle. I'd guess this is some kind of sale-of-concept image for army in-house use or as a proposal from a vendor.

Somebody here is selling something. Either that, or this is some extremely vain senior officer's vehicle.

It's actually a M1 or M1A1 Combat Car. The cavalry plaque was a standard fit during the inter-war period. Tanks belonging to the infantry had plaques with crossed rifles.

I'm wondering if that's a blank adapter barrel, IOW specifically made just for blanks.

The M19 BFA wasn't around back then. Maybe I need to research some of my M2 TM's.

My wild guess is that it may actually be a .30 cal machine gun.

That one looks like a .30 cal,

Notice the cloth belt and the TC holding the pistol grip. Quite an unusual picture.

I can't figure out the bumper number. 1st Brigade 66th Armored Division? No such thing I don'e believe. Maybe 1st Training Brigade, 66th Armor?

You got a better/bigger image,

Shoulder patches aren't subdued and mightgive a good clue. Suspect the picture was between 63-66, since she is equipped with the VSS-1 search light fittings but still has the old M28 periscope for the TC's cupola.

Hi,

63-66 would make it under that weird TOE that was in effect for a while? Atomic Divisions, or somesuch?

I recall that they used "Battle Groups" instead of brigades, so 1BG would be 1st Battle Group...maybe?

I think you are right! I got to looking around and 66th Armor was part of the Combat Arms Regimental System. 'CARS' consisted of battalions, squadrons or BATTLE GROUPS.
