Tank show Aug 18,19
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.

How many people are going to the NMAW/VMMV Open House this weekend? It should be a good show as always! Smile

I sent RSVP today, for Saturdays show. I'm bringing the wife (she likes historical events) and hope to get a few photos. Weather looks ok so far! Maybe we'll see you there. Rick

What a great show! I shot over 200 photos. The Swedish "S" tanks, Swiss, British, French, Russian, and American armor collecion was amazing. German Hetzer (G13), trucks, jeeps, artillery, helicopters. Live demonstrations. I went expecting only a few vehicles and was suprised at the vast amount they've gathered so far! Good job VMMV and American Wartime Museum! Rick

Hi Lesley,
Sorry, this year I concentrated on overall photos and few close ups. Next year I plan on staying over night in the area. I was having van (car) problems and only stayed 2 hours. I will attach a few more T72M1 photos. Rick

Lesley,
The T72 was in excellent shape. It's an ex-East German vehicle like all other items (ex-Soviet) except the T55 which is ex-Czech (information from restorers) The VMMV should be commended for the great job they do in bringing them back to life! Here's a few more photos. Rick
