PHOTOS -C-2 ,LEO AEV ,LE0 ARV "AFGAN " Work up training
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.

Excellant shoot recceboy! Enough there to stir the soul of every old warrior.

A few observations - a) what are the fittings on the glacis plate of the tank crossing the non-Bailey bridge in #26?
b) gotta love those Wainwright cattle in #28 and #46. Every one a purebred show critter when the committee of adjustment sits.
c) from the constellation of Papiaz padlocks in #42, an outsider would think all tankers were (gasp, choke) thieves.

Plenty of shots there of battleruns, close in action and small unit cooperation.

I have I said thanks for taking the photos to you lately? Thanks again.

Anthony, that's part of the MEXAS mounts on the lower glacis plate, correct?

Today's TV had an ARVL arriving in Kandahar, proudly flying the maintainer's flag. Didn't see anything else get off the plane. Maybe flying one a day. You can see in this picture a HUGE link on the left rear corner. From the other pictures, it had to be 10" across. Biggest tiedown I've ever seen on a vehicle.

One Leo and a Taurus left on an AN-124 but only the Taurus was shown arriving on a C-17. So where did they change aircraft?

Yes, they have changed aircraft.

The Leopard C2s are having additional upgrades above the visible MEXAS armour enroute to Afghanistan at an undisclosed location in Europe. Only the Taurus ARV, (not ARVL...that's an M113), has arrived so far.

The silver tow hooks are huge, and they cost a small fortune each.
