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.

OK, here are some pics from this morning. Yesterday was sunny and pleasant; what a difference a day makes. I hope I can remember to get some pictures without the snow.

The picture of the Duster in Victoria, IL is a few years old.

Post subject: LVT3C in the news

The LVT was repainted and moved to a new location in Galesburg, IL. A radio station has posted two news items about the LTV.
