Richardson Motor Pool: (FINALLY!!!)
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.

T-72 is a 1986 Soviet built verhicle. The cyrillic ''X'' translates to ''Kh'' and the ''B'' is a ''V'' in our language.

The ''Kh'' indicates it is 1986 built. The rest of the c/n I don't know (yet).

The T-55 number I can not make anything out of it. I don't have any Polish, Soviet, Czech examples in that number / letter series.

I've seen some T-54s / Type 59s in Vietnam with the same sort of numbers.

Regards

T 55 (SN:5210__005)




Don,
Is the SN above for the Russian or Iraqi T-55?

And there are two T-72s at Richardson right? A T-72M and a T-72M1?

That would have to be an 'IP'

I was in a hurry getting photos of the sn's. Trying to squeeze around the masses vehicle area ( as you know ) wasn't easy.

What's that on the right side of that Bradley turret? I've never seen anything like that on a Bradley, and I used to work in the Bradley office at TACOM. Was there a serial number on this one?

No data yet, SN wasn't in usual location on front, currently rear is difficult to access. Give me a day or two.
