Some Aberdeen things....
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.

I'm certainly not a Tiger expert (more of a Sherman fan), but the Kingtiger is (I believe) the one now at Patton Museum (Turm nr 332). The Tiger I from APG was sent to Germany for restoration and was loaned for display. It was supposed to have come home a couple years ago. I imagine current plans are not to bring it home until the facility at Ft. Lee is ready.

I see the TigerII at Knox all the time, does anyone know when the cutaway was done?? That is what had me confused about it.

It was done in the late 40's at APG.

The photo of it on display there is sheet metal tack welded over the cutaway areas.

#2 & 3 have been covered.

#4 remains a bit of mystery to me. We discussed it just a little while ago...

Will need some more time for #5 - lots of towed artillery...

#6 is the M1920 Gun Motor Carriage, in storage at the warehouse.

#7%20is%20the%20M1922E%20Mk%20X%20GMC,%20aka%20\"Slo%20Poke.\"%20Also%20in%20the%20warehouse. #8%20is%20the%20M3%20Gun%20Motor%20Carriage,%20in%20the%20LST%20Building%20at%20Fort%20Knox. #9%20is%20the%20BA-64B%20at%20the%20Military%20Museum%20of%20Southern%20New%20England%20in%20Danbury%20CT.
