Help/Pics Needed - Former Quantico Marine-Air Ground Museum
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.

That one is an Airoll 1 prototype - they preceded the XM759 series and possibly was designated LVA-X1 but remeber that it may have had that painted on it after it became a museum exhibit. You know what museum staff are like for painting things on vehicles that aren't quite correct


Good point. I truly loathe the "oh, but no one will ever know" mentality that some organizations have, especially when they have the resources and ability to do better than that. I personally try only to present information that I know as fact, and when getting information from others I always take it with a grain of salt and rarely convey it to others before checking the facts. I absolutely hate spreading false information. That's one of the reasons why the Mechanized Museum - after 10 years - still has no signage for any vehicles - because we do not want to be "that museum" that puts a bunch of uninformed crap on their displays that is not true. That, and we have no time or money. Rolling Eyes

I took the pictures of it going on the trailer, but the only picture I have of it in the Mechanized Museum is from the back:

(yes, it is dusty)

Supertsar - is there any chance I could add your photo's? It would be great to show the vehicles in earlier times.


Absolutely - love your web site.

Thanks for your kind words - I'll get on to it. Do you know the date the pictures were taken (or a best estimate)?

Well judging by my Aunt Stella's hair-do in one of the shots - I'm going to say 1979 or so...

Now updated with supertsar's photo's:

preservedtanks.com/Loc...0&Select=4

as well as the obvious new SU-76, T-34 and Ho-Ro entries, there are extra photos if you follow the M3A1 Stuart, Ha-Go and location photo links.

Thanks again supertsar (let me know if you have a website you want me to add as a link on the photo pages).
