interesting afghan scrap heap...
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 think he is means the drive sprockets of T-55 tank (most likely) on the left side of the picture Wink Wink

or maybe the Rogers trailer??

the DUKW??

the 2 Daimler Scout Cars??

Am I getting close??

If that is not it, I missed it Sad

Nice picture by the way, it was taken with an Canon EOS 20D, ISO-100 with an 55mm lens and the date was 10-11-2005 at 17:00

I think that may not be a true DUKW It appears to have a tailgate ( The DUKW didn't) But something I read years ago said the Soviets made a DUKW clone that improved on the design by adding a tailgate to allow easier unloading

right. It's called a ZiS-485 (BAV).

"Similar in size to the DUKW, which it resembles, the BAV has a rear loading ramp by which vehicles can be driven right aboard, rather than being loaded over the side by crane." (Wikipedia)

These are rather "Armored Carriers, Wheeled, Indian Pattern, Mk IV"

Post subject: Re: interesting afghan scrap heap...

This is a synthesis of what we know about pre-1945 vehicles in Afghanistan :

-3 Renault FT tanks went abroad (2 were recovered from a dump)
-1 Renault FT is still displayed at the entrance of a fort
-the Disston tractor tank is in a dump
-the 2 Armored Carriers, Wheeled, Indian Pattern, Mk IV are in a dump too
-the SU-76 is "somewhere" in Afghanistan (but apparently not in a dump)

what else?
