USA (NOW V3.0!), Canada, France and Belgium AFV Registers
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 can confirm the M47 Patton displayed at VFW Post 9473 in Reynoldsburg, OH is SN 2620, identified from the front tow lugs (it seems to have been stamped on both.)

I was at the U.S. Army Transportation Museum at Ft. Eustis on 18JUN13 and saw this M4A3(75)W and M60A3. Neither of which I recall being mentioned before.

Couldn't get close enough to see any s/n on this M4A3.



The s/n on the M60A3 appears to read 3687A while the reg number off of the glacis looks like 9B9153.

I was at the Virginia War Museum in Newport News on 17JUN13 and saw this 2S1. It's not mentioned on the register but was mentioned in a post on this board several years ago.

New York - Fort Drum - the vehicles previously on display at the intersection Lewis Ave & 5th St W have been placed into storage. The base is doing a lot of construction and the land where the vehicles were displayed has been earmarked for new buildings. The Ft Drum museum hopes to have the funding to make an armor display in the future. The M5 Stuart on display at the museum was brought back from Haiti by the 10th Mountain Division after Operation Uphold Democracy.

Oregon - Oregon Army National Guard Armory, 64082 Airport Ln, in La Grande, OR has M60A3 SN3075A & M60A3 SN3046A. According to the SGT that granted me access to photograph the 2nd M60A3, the tanks belong to the Oregon Military Museum but are stored there until the new museum building is constructed.

They have an M4 Sherman composite on display. According to the gent at the museum, they have photos of that very M4 on Okinawa.
No M47

must be 44480, as it fits with a production order of 580 Composites, from SN 44228 to SN 44807.

Hey P-O,

You're correct! I made a typo on the M4 composite - just checked the photos and it is 44480. Thanks for catching that. I've corrected the original post as well.

Cheers!

Regarding the M26A1 in New Bedford, MA at Franco-American Square - as I noted in my gallery post, the SN is listed in the Registry as 1693 but the SN stamped on the tank is 922.

The M7 listed in Marysville, KS is located at a different park than the one listed in the Registry. Its actually in Lions Park off N 16th & North St. The GPS coordinates are incorrect as well.

Update on the Minerva, OH M3A3 Stuart-I checked the coordinates in the 2011 Register but came up blank, however a quick search shows it's now displayed at the "Minerva Veterans Memorial Park" at:

40.727316, -81.102327

Or 106 East Plain Street, Minerva, OH.
