M18 Hellcat - Survivors
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.

Hello,
I have watched this forum for a while and have found this thread wich catches my intrest would any of you know any information about the hellcats in bosnia? i would be interested in acquireing one. I got my M36 from bosnia
Tim


There are or where 3x M18 Hellcat's at Miclic Range and Military Area (Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina)
You could contact the Army of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and offer a cooperation If they give you a M18 you are wiling to pay for renovation of other vehicles in Bosnia. There is a lot of none restored vehicles. (restore = paint them for protection of water conditions and make some cosmetic restoration)

On a different tack - all these M18s, many restored to "as good as new" and two major model companies produced plastic models of the M18 and STILL couldn't get the hull quite right!

Thanks, website updated. Note that T70 on the data plate doesn't mean it's not a standard M18. US vehicles frequently are type classified after manufacture, so they often have a data plate that uses the pre-classification number. Manufacture in 1943 ties in with the registration fine, but note that the M18 designation wasn't approved until the following year after perhaps a thousand M18s (T70s) had already been built.

Hunnicutt gives serial number 7 as having the registration 40108110. If they were used consistently that would imply yours has the serial number 446 - I don't suppose you have anything to support that?

In all soviet documents this vehicle have index T70. Also first M18-s used in combat (february 1944) also have T70 GMC index. Same thing with M26 tank - until march 1945 he have T26E3 index.
