ROBAT XM1060
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.

Sorry Jim,
Can't help you. Only 2 were made that I know of and their current where abouts are unknown, though there is a rumor the engineer school house has one (or both) at Fort Leonard Wood. I believe they are no more with the advent of the M1 Panther system, being no longer needed. Those Panther's are also quite rare.

Wait a minute...is there a thead here, recent, where one of these was thought to have appeared in the background of some other shots of other stuff? I don't recall the thread or the location, but I do remember this coming up recently. Thought it was here. It wasn't he subject of the photo, but came up in the background...was the first I had ever heard of this vehicle.

YES!...here, this thread...TACOM, Warren Michigan:

As I recall, we had a remote piloted M60 mine clearing vehicle in Bosnia in 1999. At the time there were rumors of the M1 version being sent to Bosnia, but never heard anything on that.

Heres Canadian AARDVARK at work....
