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.

See the link below. Final drive housing with attachments. Can anyone identify purpose? Perhaps the remains of some sort of mine plow?

I would too. It's funny that one doesn't usually see the bottom of the final drive housing.

I wonder if they could be the attachments for the spade/dozer blade of an M74 ARV.
They sure look like the ones in the pics I've seen.

Bottoms up, gents!
Frankly, the M74 is the only Sherman variant I know of that had the blade fitted directly to the transmission cover.
