Forgive me, but beside the M47, is that an LVT(A)? or am I off entirely? These are the best pics I have found...

Due to the tan Hummer with green doors in the background of the first picture, what military post were you on to find these vehicles?, a reserve / National Guard post?

The armored car looks like the Hungarian PSZH-IV APC.

Nah - common mistake perpetuated by Wikepdia amongst others. The 'owners' manual calls it LVTC-3 so we have to assume thats correct... though I suspect it may have originally been called LVT-3C till someobody realised they still had the originals in service..

Cool

No - Crismon mentions it in his US Military Tracked Vehicles. Yuba also produced a wheeled gun tractor powered by steam!

Cool

Sounds like some kind of Hollywood sci-fi/post apocolyptic fantasy Rolling Eyes

Who (or what) is Yuba?

I have pics of 2-3 early American tanks powered by steam...of course, they're at home where I ain't.

M47 though, is definitely in another time frame...
