Oppps...
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.

Found this site while surfing around. Brings to mind a great quote related to me by a friend who accidently 'punched' a guntube into a farm house while manuevering thru a town in Germany.

" Get Your Living Room out of my GunTube...!!!! " Mr. Green

Tanker Humor....

Almost happened to me in 1988. Track broke and we could only go straight.

When I saw this, I figured that perhaps the avid model builder 'out-there' might be able to make a real 'kick ass' diarama out of the photos provided on the website.

Just a thought.

I've already posted the pics of the PX and MP station at Ft. Knox in '73....'course, that episode was on purpose and not an "accident" (for which the perpetrator paid dearly....six years hard labor at Leavenworth, IIRC).

I thought about THAT, when I saw the photos, also.

This has good multi-angles to the incident, and the recovery. I still think it would make an interesting 'cold war' era diorama.

When I checked out the linked map to the area, I thought that was quite interesting also.

That series of LEO 1, seems to be the same that competed in the 1989 CAT.

....Sorry if I keep 'harping' on that, (CAT 89). It was one of those periods of my life and professional career that made quite an impression on me. The intensity took years to overcome, eventhough I rotated back to the 'States, a mere 10 days following the competition's completion.

"Immédiatement les moyens sont activés et, à 11h23, 14 pompiers sont sur les lieux avec une autopompe, une autopompe 4 x 4, un véhicule de désincarcération, un autoélévateur, une voiture de commandement, un véhicule matériel et une ambulance."

14 firemen responded; 1 pumper truck; 1 4x4 pumper; 1 rescue vehicle; 1 "self-raiser"???; a CP; a material vehicle AND an ambulance. That adds up to two guys per vehicle !
