M55
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.

Anyone got a list of extant M55 self-propelled guns?

[Not exactly. I have some old photo's of the one at APG:

preservedtanks.com/Typ...oryId=1650

plus from my notes back in the 1980s there were further examples as follows:

2. Fort Chaffee (Arkansas)
3. Letterkenny Depot (Chambersburg, PA)
4. Fort Lewis (Washington)

I believe there are also examples at MVTF and Danbury. Plus I have notes on some M53s, if you're interested in those.]


Edit: Never mind, Rafal has come up trumps:

Didn't see this one listed on any of the above links. Not entirely sure if it's the same thing, but it looks similar. Took the photos 2-3 years ago...

It's on Camp Roberts, near San Luis Obispo, California.

The one in Camp Roberts is listed in the PDF, at page 12. But your picture is better.

Wow - I didn't even notice it because the green is so different in my pictures. Feel free to use my photo.

Here's a bonus picture, from the back...

Anyone know what happened to the M55E1 - is that still around?
