M114 (Super Lingle)
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.

Great to have you aboard! and what an awesome looking Lingle! I know one member of this DG that will certainly be interested, right Roy?!?!?
Do you have interior pictures as well and maybe some of the powerplant?
Where is this located?

You sure have done a great job of restoring this. Did you ever learn why the hole was cut out on the right rear? I've seen several like this. I think they all had some sort of radiation warning on them so my guess is they may have been used as SAM simulators on a range. The ones like this I saw were at the target storage area at White Sands Missile Range. I was on M114's for two years.

Mark from what I understand, cutting the hole(s) was a measure to demil the armor...probably to keep it from being functional at the time of disposal. What I know for sure is that we have had a lot of fun working on it, and we look forward to working on the second one as well.

The ones like yours that I saw at White Sands had louvres covering the hole. There was a label on the outside that said something to the effect of "DANGER-HIGH RADIATION LEVEL". I can't swear to it but I'm thinking they had been in the posession of the Air Force.

Hi Guys!

Is that video something that you guys would be inclined to share with the whole forum? (entirely your choice, of course) If it's in a format that we can use, we do have a provision for uploads here for items that this community finds of common interest, all properly credited to the originator, of course. Completely up to you.

It also depends on the size and format, of course. And I'd like to hear Roy's impressions since he'd have been the only one of us to have seen it. Roy and you guys can PM me with your thoughts on this if you prefer.

You are more than welcome to use it, but it is not much as it is a cell phone video. (If I had known that they were recording sound, I would have ran the sirens all the way up) Anyway, we will be doing some better quality vids soon and I will make sure you get the good stuff.

Well, if you're thinking toward doing an actual vid, let's wait for that and you can prepare one with your "audience" in mind. Wink
Something not too long, maybe 2-3 minutes, or...you might just want to upload to someplace like Youtube and post a link here. Your call. I'm sure we'd like to see your efforts, either way.

The "Add download" page looks like this:
www.com-central.net/in...d&c=81

and is a tad complex (even for me ) so when the time comes, we can work out a way to transfer the file and I'll beg admin help to upload it after we review it.

Hey WG

can you check something out for us.

We are trying to figure out if the serial number of M114s appears anywhere on the exterier. There is some though based on a very small sample that it is stamped in the hull just below the left rear lifting eye. Since you have access to the inside of an M114 can you check and see if yours has the stamped number and if it corresponds to the serial number on the data plate? Or if the serial number (and/or the registration number) is stamped anywhere else on the exterior.

Thanks

I will look for the numbers you referenced. I know the machine in this video did not have the serial number under the lifting eye, but there was a number there and on the opposite side as well. Anyway, here is our "test drive"

I updated the "test drive" link Twisted Evil
