XM1 MBT photos. JPG.
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.

Greetings to all, I have a question - where the surviving XM1 Chrysler prototype turret is located now?

Indeed, inquiring minds want to know. In the late 1990s, this turret (or another of the Chrysler test turrets) was mounted on the hull of XM1 FSED prototype PV4 at the headquarters of the US Army Tank-automotive Command in Warren, Michigan (along with some other interesting early M1 test beds). In the decade following, these vehicles disappeared. I was never able to discover where they went, even though I was a TACOM employee and knew whom to ask – no-one seemed to know. Do these things still exist somewhere, or were they scrapped?

Yeah, that's a photo I took at TACOM in 1999, along with others. But I still don't know where these things went.
