APG video screenshots 1987-88
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: APG video screenshots 1987-88

Hi all,
I put my old video tapes on disc 2 years ago and today tried to get a few screenshots to show. In 1987 and 1988 the concrete pads were being set, and some of the AFVs were "primer red" waiting to be painted. The Tiger I and Tiger II were both still there as displays (my few shots of them did not come out, they are both in background of Type 95 tank) and there was a German 8 wheel Spahwagon and 2 Hotchkiss carriers there then. Basically, my video was a walk around using an old GE video Camera, for it's time it did ok. I hope to get more (and better) screen shots using tripod and possibly pause button, still need to work on it! My too much "time on my hands" ends June 9, when I am released to go back to work. Rick

The next group of photos are from APG Armed Forces Day. Tried tripod and closer views, negligible results.

These video shots are from APG Live Fire Armed Forces Shows. I have also got 35mm photos from those days (much better quality) and eventually will post them. In 1988 they showed two SPH. The M109A4 and the pilot M106A6 Paladin, interesting to note that both vehicles had problems with firing and after 1 round were done.

Bridge. IIRC this bridge was Israeli and being tested at APG to replace AVLB bridge.
