Tankland #7 - M43 & M53 self-propelled artillery
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.

M43 8" Howitzer Motor Carriage - one of only 4 known survivors (out of 48 built). There's one at the 1st Cav museum at Fort Hood, and another in Wyoming MI. Craig says there's another at Fort Sill, which makes sense...

M53 155mm Self-Propelled Gun. Many more of these were built, but there's still just six surviving examples (or at least ones on display) I am aware of - the T97 pilot at APG; and ones in Denver & Golden CO, Pompano Beach FL, and the Virginia War Museum in Newport News VA.

I think Littlefield has one too. I'll confirm on my next visit.
