More IDing from Space....
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.

As part of checking out locations for the GPS & Map updates, I took a look at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center in Butlerville, IN on Google satellite view and instead of the register listed T-72, I found what looks like a Sherman to me. Since there has been some “IDing from above” recently on the forum, I post the coordinates here and open the floor for discussion: 39.051027, -85.527440. The base is fascinating!

I will say its a Sherman. It definitely looks like a rounded hull and a long barreled gun so I am going to say it is a M4A1 (76).

Thanks guys!

Thanks for the info and good spotting, JStar! I'll add it to my files.

Let us know if you can gain access and make sure you get photos, of course!

Cheers,
VB
