Loss of words or misidentification of common, everyday items is not uncommon for the elderly, don't rub it in- excuse me while I head for my bunker... Laughing

Don't mind that furriner.... Wink

An experienced 113 crewman would know the steps are up the tow hook mounts-the front slope via the grenade launchers then headlight mounts as handles. Razz

That's Mr Ferriner to you... Wink

And I always thought that ramp in the back was so convenient for entering the vehicle- you died-in-the-wool armour types do like your little inconveniences, dontcha? Laughing

Well, assuming there's somebody inside to pull that lil' handle fer ya'. And if it's anything like MY vehicle, better you better not be back there or you'd have been squashed like a bug because there was no cable to arrest it's descent. Mr. Green (So, better to use the door, if it's unlocked). But that denies you the benefits of exercise, which CIA types need, bein's as we're...well...decrepit and all. (OK, we were decrepit then, but even more so now)

Truer words were never spoken, it took me some time to get my hands and feet arranged just so to climb up that M42 at Munster a couple of months ago- that would be an added benefit of having your own AFV at home, exercise!!! Think my sick insurance would fall for that and sponsor me an M41?

Well, time to grab some shut-eye, it's now about 2 in the am here- thank you, gentlemen and Mr Kibbey, it's been a thoroughly enjoyable day in AFV-land.

From a distance (you didn't post a close up from the best angle of it) that Duster almost appears to have a set of spare barrels on the left front fender where they're supposed to be. That would be very unusual. I've only seen it once, and that's on the one in Hue, Vietnam.

They do have the extra barrels. They do a great job of finding old stuff out there.

Hi AJ2! Hi Folks!

Thanks for posting pictures of those two M114A0s! I always love to see that someone has saved another Lingle for the target range!

Sgt, Scouts Out!
