Ft. Snelling Military Museum - Pics #6
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.

Thanks for the pictures! I was surprised to see that the wheels on the M26 were chain drive! Learned something new!

So what happened to the Alpha, Beta and Delta Goats? Senhor Kibbey, I expected better of you... Spreading misinformation, eh? Mr. Green

Thanks Bob,

another fine series of usually underphotographed vehicles and an interesting study in weathering and fading.

I wonder how many of these vehicles are donors, there are a few where a complete rebuild seems more viable an option than a restoration.

I can honestly say that I had nothing whatsoever to do with that project so how much better can be asked of me in those circumstances, Herr Mehner? Laughing
