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.

Hi folks,

correct me if I'm wrong, but this are the same vehicle's in the posts from Roy_A_Lingle about vehicle's arriving at Frt Bliss

Especialy the M36 Jackson is easy to pick out, with the protection around the front ligth's and the painted on serial number

The vehicle's come from the
1st Infantry Division Museum - Würzburg - Germany

Michel,
Actually I think thats a different museum. The newly arriving Fort Bliss vehicles are coming from the 1st _Armored_ Division Museum in Baumholder, Germany.

The 1st Infantry Division was based at Wurzburg until 2006, when it relocated to Fort Riley (except for one brigade that stayed in Schweinfurt until 2008). Looks like US Army Wurzburg closed in 2008, so I presume all of that stuff has headed back - to Fort Riley? Although its possible it got passed on to the 1st Armored Division Museum at Baumholder...

Hi Neil,

I think youre right

at appears that the 1st infantry has own M36 Jackson with the same headlight protection (how big is the change on that ??)

And all the stuff moved along to Fort Riley

I believe the modified headlights is fairly standard for ex-Yugoslav M36s...

For example, here's VMMV's ex Yugoslav M36
