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: Scenes around Ft. Knox - pics #6 (last batch)

Here's the last batch of photos of Ft. Knox scenes from the end of April 2007. (It's okay to breathe a sigh of relief; I won't get my feelings hurt. <grin>)

Located about a block east of Skidgel Hall off Phantom Division Road we find the T-29.

Just%20to%20the%20north%20of%20the%20T-29%20is%20located%20its%20sister,%20the%20T-30. Go%20Armor!%20Go%20Army!%20Spirited%20water%20towers%20on%20the%20west%20side%20of%20Dixie%20Street%20south%20of%20the%20Stithton%20Circle. The%20north%20face%20of%20Ireland%20Army%20Hospital.%20In%201967%20the%20eye%20clinic%20here%20dug%20a%20tiny%20fragment%20of%20shell%20casing%20brass%20out%20of%20my%20left%20eye%20which%20had%20lodged%20there.%20This%20was%20a%20result%20of%20standing%20behind%20a%20General%20Electric%20GAU-2B/A%20%207.62mm%20'mini-gun'%20mounted%20on%20the%20left%20pylon%20of%20an%20XM-21%20Weapons%20Sub-system%20of%20a%20Bell%20UH-1C%20gunship%20during%20a%20live%20firing%20ground%20exercise%20on%20one%20of%20the%20ranges.%20They%20did%20a%20nice%20job. The%20hospital's%20helipad%20looking%20south.%20Seems%20like%20an%20international%20airport%20to%20me%20because%20of%20its%20size%20and%20night%20&%20approach%20lighting. Nobody%20needs%20to%20be%20told%20what%20this%20is,%20do%20they?%20%20:wink:%20 Taken%20in%20a%20parking%20lot%20on%20the%20SW%20corner%20of%20the%20intersection%20of%20Eisenhower%20Avenue%20and%20Old%20Ironsides%20Avenue. The%20south%20gate%20of%20Ft.%20Knox%20on%20Bullion%20Boulevard%20leading%20to%20US%2031W%20and%20the%20nearby%20town%20of%20Radcliff.

That's all, Gentlemen. Thanks for looking and thanks for all of your erudite comments!

Thanks, Bob...

I bet you also recall that T29 being in Stithton Circle back in the old days...I know I do.

We used to boresight our tanks on Ireland A. Hosp. windows with the crosshair method...it was visible from most points around base, and offered good right angles for this purpose.
