3D tank cdrom
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.

Moderator Edit: Don't know what you're jumping for, Blabla, you're account has been suspended for posting a malicious link. Happy trails. NOTE...we've had two reports of apparent malicious activity associated with clicking this website.

Update, the same thing has been reported at Tanknet. This link attempted to upload trojans to people's systems...avoid it. I've deleted it altogether now and admins have suspended the poster's account.

Guys (and Gals, I suppose, potentially):

Just a quick warning about the above link — I think that you might want to treat it with the greatest care — and that those of you without virus-protection software might want to stay away from it completely. I'm not certain that it is entirely unsavory, but it certainly took me to places I didn't want to go. Another flag is that the initial poster has apparently signed up today.

I think it best to leave it quarantined, at least until someone can check it out and verify its benign nature.

OK, its cool with me. I'm a little gun-shy of it at this point, however. I clicked on the link only, and had several unwanted windows pop up, one of which declared it was scanning my hard drive. I don't get that from any other site, especially after clicking only on a link. My browser supposedly blocks pop-up windows. Confused

I have to admit that the graphic is pretty cool looking (it looks like a see-through view of an M47 going from the ground up), and seems to be an awful lot of work to go through just to get some slow-witted tank nut to click on a link. There are probably far less labor-intensive methods of getting someone to blast someone's system . . .

Mark,
I didn't get that, but I have pretty good AV protection. However, I already had one report from the Moderator's Forum that seems to confirm your basis for suspicion....with that in mind, I'm going to take the link down...

Link deleted, suspicions confimed at two websites where this link was posted. 'Nuff said. Thanks to Mark for the "Heads Up"! Wink
