Vicksburg MS, AFV collection
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.

Some more on the GMC-MAN truck: According to this, it was made in 1989 in preparation for the PLS competition and it's basically the MAN SX90 with a 500hp Detroit Diesel engine mated to an Allison automatic transmission.
And there was also an even earlier cooperative effort between the two companies that yielded the M1001, M1002, M1013 and M1014.

I stumbled upon this site somehow, but at any rate, i work at the facility that has that museum. More specifically, those are my branches vehicles, we tested them and put them there. Pretty cool to see people interested in something i see everyday. I'll be glad to answer any further questions about those vehicles or the facility in general.

Off topic, what do you guys think these things are?
binged.it/LoFAMI



Not sure what you mean by "these things", but:

The lattice-looking things beside the building are stacks of Bailey Bridge panels. I'm sure of that. There should be some stringers and decking hiding around nearby, possibly inside the buildings.

If you mean the white things at upper left, I'm not sure at all.

The circular thing at the upper right looks a lot like the base for some kind of launcher, or perhaps a radar dish or antenna.

You didn't ask, but the wingy-thing (an AH1 Cobra, as a guess) looks like part of some sort of demonstration or test area. All the structures are made of the same barrels or containers, used to make up a whole bunch of different bunkers, shelters, and a revetment for the bird.
