AAF Tank Museum #9 - M16A1 GMC, M1015A1, M114
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.

Roy is probably unconscious... Mr. Green

Neil, would you have any further shots of the front antenna mount on the M1015A1 by any chance? Still a rather undocumented vehicle but an interesting one nonetheless.

Axles Are Removed


Wonder if they are referring to the final drives? If they were similar to the M551 it would make sense, they had drive axles that you would remove from the hub, not really a final drive, just a shaft that went stright to the transmission.

'Weed, remember the spring that always got lost if you weren't careful.

BTW, interesting gun sheild art.

The "antenna" on the front of the M1015A1 is actually a ground rod driver. It is kind of a mini piledriver to keep us electronic warfare types from having to use big hammers.

You are correct Joe. The disconnect between the sprocket and the steer gear was just like the Sheridan system. That's a good warning to have because without the axles in place, that vehicle has no internial braking system.

Spring? Every seen what happiens when the spring is left inside the tube for the drive shaft? Not a good thing.

Thanks Neil for the M114 shots!

Roy,

Thanks, I kinda thought so but never knew for sure. I kinda recall a certain individual playing a trick on a certain VISMOD BMP crew at Fort Irwin. He kinda sneeked over at night, removed one of the shafts and then replaced the cover. Made for an interesting morning.

LOL! Razz Razz Razz Razz

That crew should have set the parking brake! Those shifts were a bit hard to get out when the brakes where locked up!

Thanks Tom,

that was completely new to me, although with the known ineptitude of the EW types in regards to tools it does not come as a surprise. Mr. Green
