Short Video Clip (M551)
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.

Mark,
If I'm not mistaken, that is from the longer public domain film on the Redstone arsenal site "Employment of Attack Helicopters" which is an interesting 28 minutes of viewing we posted links to here a couple of years ago. It's still up and worth every minute. It's downloadable in it's entirety, too...along with some other great stuff. Essentially a promo for the AH-56 Cheyenne, it's endlessly entertaining. Laughing

M60's, M113's and Cobras, Oh My! The war my generation was trained to fight, but got side-tracked elsewhere....

This is from a 30 minute video about Attack helicopters. I just kept the good stuff. Cool

A hell of a recoil on the M551.

Cruising the Redstone Arsenal videos again, I found a feature on my last assignment, AMC including some on the subordinate command, TEC ("...where troops test equipment under field conditions"). Some might find the viewing tedious, but there is some excellent footage of the loading/unloading of the early style smoke dischargers on an M551 at about 16:50, nice and close up, too. Earlier in the film, a test driver really gooses an M551 in a test, the sound is delicious.

Film is dated '74, so probably a composition of film from previous years, overlapping with mine. "Goer" footage was probably during my tenure (previous year or two), though that was not a project of mine.
