Either the US Army or the USMC has a new tank
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.

Post subject: Either the US Army or the USMC has a new tank

Hi Folks!

Was over at the US Army web site checking for new photos of AFV and ran acrossed this photo. While I thought I knew what this vehicle was, the caption claims it is something a bit different.

The following link is to the smaller photo with the caption:
www.army.mil/-images/2...5/23/5188/

It's a M1A1 BRADLEY TANK????? Shocked Shocked Shocked

Spot Report!
Sgt, Scouts Out!

Remember, beyond tankers, mech infantrymen and mechanics, not too many soldiers have interaction with armored vehicles. I have an Army dentist that works for me and she couldn't tell the difference between a 113 and a tank.

Hi Folks!

I don't know if the individual who took the photo wrote the caption, but if he did, that may account for the new M1A1 Bradley Tank.

That reminds of the time I drove through Camp Parks looking for a static M48 and the some guy in charge bitched me out for driving through a restricted area.

"What are you looking for?" he asked. I replied "the tank on display here".

"The what???????"

Then I described "a heavily armored vehicle with a large cannon..."

Then he looked toward the sky for a few seconds as if seeking guidance from the Almighty and replied "Ohhhh, I don't think we have anything like that here".

A trait she shares with a character who makes his presence felt relentlessly on Wikipedia, Youtube, Amazon and several websites of his own design apparently.
