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.

Short-tracked Frankentank based on PT-76 hull (front idler is missing, but the bar is there)?

What's that S. Korean flag on in back ground?

I have to check my sources, but I don't recall any engagement between ROKA units and NVA tanks. In addition, the NVA mostly used the PT-76 (qv operations in the PDJ in Laos, Lang Vei, Ben Het & Lam Son 719), at least before the 1972 invasion of the South. As far as available sources indicate, this was the earliest that the 63 was employed by the NVA.

Also, the South Koreans are not mentioned as having seen action during the 1972 Easter Offensive. Therefore, one wonders about the possibility of the tank being a gift from the ARVN, like the APC in the Aussie armor museum and the SPAAG in APG, or maybe even its crew defected with it to the South from the DPRK.
