New photos @ Toadman's Tank Pictures
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.

It looks as though Jacques Littlefield has "more money than Gawd." Does anyone have a clue about how many millions the cost of his shop's amazing Panther restoration his shop has swallowed?

I haven't seen the magazine yet. However, Peter Brown, who did the write up emailed me a copy of what he wrote. It sure made me happy! Smile Smile

Nobody at the shop knows the actual cost yet. However, the estimate is $2-$2.5 million when completed.

Hi Chris! Hi Folks!

- toadmanstankpictures

9 new pictures to the exisiting XM734/M113A1 gallery.


XM734/M113A1? Are you sure that vehicle has a diesel engine? When I first returned from my last tour to Vietnam, I was assigned to a Cavalry Troop that had a number of M113s with that type of gun port system. Don't remember the XM number, but I guess they did have one that we never used. We just called them 'gun port tracks' or 'gun tracks' and the normal ones just 'tracks' or 'PC's.

All of ours had Mo-Gas engines. At that time, ever M-113 type vehicle we had was Mo-Gas. The engine exhaust pipe on the top of the hull does look like a A1 type, but the rear engine assest panel looks like the type used with the Mo-Gas engines (M-113A0). The left rear fender looks like the drain plug for the Mo-Gas fuel tank is there. When the switch to diesel was made, the fuel tank drain was moved inside the hull, just about the pully for the ramp cable.

The troops seats on the inside are different. The ones I worked with had seats that faced outboard. At the rear was a removeable colume something like the normal one used for the TC's stand and seat assemble. The seats had quick release pins which held the back rest and bench seats between the TC's support colume and the colume at the rear of the hull.

That support colume for the TC is also different from the ones I worked with. Mine had standard columes with the jump seat removed and some extra holes added for the quick release pins for the center row of seats.

The ones I worked with had stardard Mo-Gas fuel tanks. Any idea where the fuel tank is in that vehicle? It clearly is not at the normal area for an APC.

Thanks for all the great photos! I am green with envy Mr. Green that you get to visit that great collection.

Sgt, Scouts Out!

Hi Roy,
Well, it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong. Laughing Laughing The next chance I have to get back to the warehouses, I'll open up the engine compartment and see what's there.

Thanks again, Anthony! I'll post more of his pics in the next couple of days. I hope to have some new pics of the Littlefield Panther by then as well since I'm supposed to be heading up there in an hour and a half from now.
