Pictures from the 45th Infantry Division Museum in OKC
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.

Courtesy of my friend Kevin who just happens to be in Oklahoma City.

BTW, they seem to lik their armor painted black in Oklahoma City... Okay, now I have a Vietnam era song stuck in my head...

M4A1(76)HVSS Sherman
(I'm hoping he has more of this one he hasnt uploaded yet)



M4A3(75) Sherman











M8 howitzer motor carriage - one of five known examples in the US











M42 Duster





M44







M47 Patton









M48A5 Patton







M51

















M56 Scorpion











lotsa protection...





M59







M60A3





M103A2



















M110





What museum would be complete without an M114 Lingle?





M5 High Speed Tractor











Okay, not armor, but you dont see too many of these around - Honest John launcher...

Are you referring to the listing in the register? I'll check with my friend, but since I cant see it in the pics I assume its not there... May have been an erroneous listing based on the M8 or the M5 HST...

Interesting LOH on a stick along with the Kiowa, too. They also used to have an F-101 Voodoo just off the freeway near Crossroads Mall, in which there used to be the most wonderful hobby shop with a great collection of models, especially armor and even some real displays. Don't know if it's still there...

All that black paint is weird....

Wow... an M51 and M103? Ironically I'm going to be at the 45th Bde HQ this weekend. Now I know why fortune has favored this last-minute business trip...

Is it possible that it's an M60A1?

Hmm... You might be right, I dont see the windage sensor of whatever that antenna like thing is usually found on A3s... Any M60 experts want to chime in?

Not sure I'd expect to see that anyway on a display piece in a park. It does have the mounts for the smoke launcher thingy's. How do the turret chin fillets look?

Looks like toploader air filters.
