APG #5: M4A1(75) Sherman Calliope, M8 HMC, M56 SPAT, XM551
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.

Maybe I've asked you this before, but if so I can't find it, May I use some of your pictures at the register? As always credits will be added to the author.

Neil,
I notice what seems to be an absence of a receiver/transmitter box in the usual location as well as an unfamiliar structure on the right side (of the vehicle's) gun. Is this a transmitter box variant (only one lens, though) or is it where the original "spotter rifle" was mounted? It doesn't look right for the telescope sight mount.

Dunno, have to rely on the Sheridan prototype experts out there. Only info I have is that its supposedly SN 19, although that seems high to me for an XM551 - unless they had a lot of prototypes...
