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.

Post subject: M7 Snow Tractor and M28 Cargo Carrier

The Allis-Chalmers M7 snow tractor was designed for use by the U.S. Army Air Corps as a rescue vehicle in remote northern bases.

The M7 (T26E4) snow tractor was standarized in August 1943, and was downgraded to Limited standard in November 1944. It was intended to pull a 1-ton M19 snow trailer (T48). The tractor used many Allis Chalmers farm tractor components. It also used many MB jeep powertrain components to lessen the military's spare parts inventory requirements.

The distinguishing feature of the M7 was the track system (halftrack). The M7’s track ran on 2 rubber belts with four steel cables inside. The machine had a tendency to have the tracks come off in use. Another feature of both the tractor and trailer is that the tires could be switched with skis.
