T-28 & T95
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 heard that the T28 was later redesignated T95 but I thought the vehicle pictured here was T95.??????

Hi Tumble! Hi Folks!

You are correct on both vehicles!

I think the problem is do to the T-28 heavy tank > T-95 Assault Gun > T-28 super heavy tank being an 'ASSAULT GUN' while it was labeled T-95. Confused

The T-95 in your picture was a 'MEDIUM TANK'. Razz

There for it was OK to use that title again. Remember how many different items of equipment has been labeled M-1 by the U.S. Army. Sad

Spot report and my 2 cents.
Sgt, Scouts Out! Smile

Because the 'marketeers' got into it. The M-1 Tank, M-2 IFV, M-3 CFV were supposed to be the first of a new generation of armored vehicles and therefor the counter was reset. It's easier to hype it up when it is an easy to remember number.

...which makes me wonder how the Sheridan got such a stratospheric model number for an assault vehicle. M551? How the heck did that happen? Where do some of those numbers come from?

Well lets look at others that came around about the same time

M548 (Cargo carrier version of M-113
M-577 (HQ version of M-113
M-578 (light ARV)
M-728 CEV
M-901 (Iterim TOW Vehicle)

Then we go into the stratus fear of 4 digit M numbers.

REseting the M series was probably a good idea but why not for all the Mummer based stuff, etc also?

...Does that mean the FCS will be the M4 & M5. Now the WWII guys will get REALLY confused.....

Which is why we use some good ol' general's names....but those old ones is gettin' used up (since the "Forrest" seems to be off the table)...lessee', maybe we can find a modern airborne general to name some stuff after...

Good point, Bob...so, how did we get up into that range anyway? I mean, is (was) there any convention for establishing these things or does some project officer just pull them out of......the air?

Actually The M-4 is a 'Command and Contol Vehicle (C2V) I think based on the Bradley platform

XM-7 FIST ( FIre Support Vehicle) based on the Bradley

XM-8 - The AGS

M-9 -ACE (Armored Combat Earthmover)

So you are at least up to the M-10

Its the result of several different numbering systems over time under differing organizations:

Before 1962, the Office, Chief of Ordnance was in charge of procuring most vehicles and the numbering system. Originally, there was a model-year numbering system (ie M1917), that lasted until about 1925. Starting about 1928, there was a more basic model numbering system. But there was (originally) one series for light tanks (ie M1, M2, & M3), one for medium and heavy tanks (M2, M3 and M4). These merged about 1942 with the M5 Stuart numbered after the M4 Sherman, as well as other armored cars like the M8 - so you had one model numbering series for most combat vehicles. However, these were still numbered seperately from the gun, howitzer & mortar motor carriage series (M3 through M44)...

Starting in about 1952, a new more "unified" model numbering series was introduced (starting with the XM45 flamethrower tank and going through the M270 MLRS) - with almost all combat vehicles.

However, prior to '58 or so, all support vehicles (ie trucks, etc) were also numbered seperately... Before '52, most trucks were procured by the Quartermaster Corps under a totally different non model-numbering system (CCKW, etc).

So prior to '58, you had multiple different vehicles with the same model number, such as M2 light tank/combat car, M2 medium tank, M2 high speed tractor, M2 scout car, etc.

Starting about 1958, all vehicles - combat vehicles, support vehicles, etc - were numbered in a truly unified numbering scheme. However, with all the trucks, etc - that quickly ran the numbers up. So you had the M551 Sheridan, M577 Command Post Carrier, etc. The Army was well on this path through the 1960s & 1970s - with the XM800 ARSV, XM803 Main Battle Tank. Originally, the Abrams was to be the M815!

However, starting in the late 70s, early 80s, somebody got the bright idea to restart the numbering - M1 Abrams, M2 & M3 Bradley, XM4 C2V, XM5 Ground Based Sensor Carrier, M6 Bradley Linebacker, M7 Fire Support Vehicle, M8 AGS, M9 ACE...

That simple enough for you?

I actually have a pretty good list of all of these, but would need some time to post it...

That's exactly what I was looking for, Neil...Thanks! I was mainly wondering how we went from M47-48-60 to M551 at about the same time...big jump. Now it makes more sense.

Yeah, if you've got an "expanded version" (and don't have to type it all), that'd be welcome too!

The high numbers like XM800, XM803...M728, M551, etc. was "in vogue" during the Sec Def McNamara's reign. Note that many armored vehicles didn't have the traditional name given to it. Only Armor branch kept the tradition going for its tanks. That M113 is screaming for a name Wink

That M113 is screaming for a name Wink


And out there in the wilderness, some lonely soul is screaming a "name", but thankfully, it's being drowned out by trees, distance, and reason....


Thanks, Bob....yep, I see the problem...'truck and trailer inflation"...that's what done it!

- Tumbleweed
I guess the Air Force did the same thing with their B-1 Bomber.
Actually the B-1 bomber is the result of the Joint Armed Forces aircraft numbering system that combined the Navy, Air Force and Army systems together in teh early '60s

The result being The navy FJ Fury series becoming the F-1
The Navy F2H Banshee becoming the F-2
The Navy F3H demon becoming the F-3
The Navy F4H Phantom and the Air force F-110 (*) becoming the F-4 Phantom.

* Quiz time what was the Air Forces name for the F-110?

The Air Force got the F-5 for the fighter version of the T-38

The Navy F7U Cutlass became the F-7
The Navy F8U Crusader became the F-8
The Navy F9F panther/Couger became the F-9

Extra quiz points for who can identify the Airplanes that became the F-6 and F-10.
The Navy F11F became the F-11
The Air force got the F-12 for the Blackbird (YF-12)
The F-13 was not assigned ( I don't know of a reason being given, there have been several theories)
Which bring us up to the F-14, F-15, F-16, YF-17, and F-18

F-19 is a question, There was speculation that it was the Stealth Fighter but that got a number in the old scheme.
F-20 was the Tigershark an outgroth of the F-5 (originally the F-5G)
F-21 was the IAI Kfir that was leased to the navy for an aggressor aircraft
F-22 Raptor

In Attack Aircraft

Navy AD Skyraider became the A-1
Navy A2J Savage became the A-2
Navy A3D Sky Warrier became the A-3
Navy A4D Skyhawk became the A-4
Navy A3J Vigalante became the A-5
Navy A2F Intruder became the A-6
The A-7 was a native in the new series but was initially a Navy design
The A-8 is interesting. I believe it was unassigned to reduce confusion with the AV-8 Harrier although the Harrier is technically in the V series
The YA-9 lost out to the A-10
A-10 Thuderbolt II (Warthog)
A-11 was not issued because of it's previous use with the Blackbird Airframe
A-12 was the Stealth replacement for the A-6 which was cancelled a while back.

That is the last A series which begs the question if they will assign an A-13 ever

The B series begins with the B-1. the navy didn't have any 'Bombers' and the last Air Force Bomber design was the XB-70 from the late 50s

The C series begins with

Navy C-1 Trader COD (Carrier onboard Delivery) plane. I would have to check if it had a previous designator or if it lived as a subseries of the S2F/S-2/E-1 family

C-2 Greyhound was a COD version of the E-2

I don't know what designs were the C-3 and C-4 (I'll check at home tonight f no one answers before then)

C-5 was the Galaxy
C-6 - another question
C-7 was the Army Caribou
C-8 I think was another Army plane (The DeHaviland Buffalo?)
C-9 was the Military DC-9 (convienent :-))
C-10 is the basic designator for the KC-10 Extender (Military version of the DC-10 :-))

There is a D series (drones) But I don't know them off the top of my head.

The Navy WF (Willy Fudd) became the E-1 Tracer
The Navy got the E-2 Hawkeye. I don't know if it started as the W2F or not. I can check tonight
Air Force got the E-3 AWACS
Not sure of the E-4 or E-5
E-6 is the Navy TACAMO (Take Charge And Move Out, I kid you not) Airborne ELF communications bird

So the B-1 is actually a logical member of a naming scheme 9although there are several in the series that are curious and the F-35 for the new JSF is a travesty)
