Id for brad's Fort Sill pics
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.

80 is a Ford JB-2 rocket (US copy of the German V1 rocket)

85 is an M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System

77 seems to be a big thing... Mr. Green

Neil - Are you sure that picture 67 768 are both 8" guns? I believe 67 is actually a 240mm Howitzer. Same mount, different gun tube. (Like the 8" Howitzer and 155mm gun).

And is #55 a British 'Light 105' I don't know the designation. The only thing that makes me doubt myself on it is that Jared or one of the other UK based folks didn't already ID it.

#73, 75, & 76 I think are ex Iraqi guns. Just guessing but is #75 a South African G5 155mm gun?

Pic N° 3 is a Bell UH-1 Huey

Pic N°1 looks like a Piper cub but I don't know exactly which model it is.

Uh... I just posted links, I guess someone misidentified the 240 in one of them? Otherwise, I'm not sure what you are talking about... But I think you're right FWIW...

Damn - I shot the messenger again And my wife wonders why the postman is in such a hurry to drop the mail and run.

Hey Armyjunk - I think you own the thread that Neil pointed to Mr. Green so they are yours to correct. And I just noticed another. Atomic Annie is a 280mm gun not a 240

Sorry

Numero Uno is a Cessna O-1 Bird Dog, # 2 is at least based on the Hiller H-123 "Raven", but I have never seen it with such a big canopy, # 3 is either a B or E model UH-1, I would need to check my references but am currently away from them... Ooops, I do not know anything about either rotary or fixed wingy thingies, I seem to be channelling Bob Steinbrunn again. Cool

There are a couple of new ones on that second link compared to when I looked at the first one:

56: listed as M7 looks to me like an M7B1 (side plates, cast nose, trailing return rollers)
72: 'USSR 122mm M1974' - this isn't a designation I recognise, I guess it's a US one (like 'Foxbat', 'Gecko', etc.). I believe it's a 2S1 Gvozdika.
