new FT17 for Patton 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.

I believe the museum recovered two of them actually? And they may be considered FT-18s, although I understand there is some debate about whether that terminology is correct. At any rate, here's a picture of one undergoing restoration last year.

I wonder if anyone bothered to do any accurate engineering drawings while it was in bits? No that would be expecting too much Wink

Cool
