Hi all,

During a recent tour stop in Las Vegas, we paid a visit to Battlefield Vegas to document what we could of their collection of AFVs. Listed below is what we saw and photographed.

Unfortunately, the USMC vet Sherman was NOT viewable as it is undergoing restoration.

Battlefield Vegas AFV info - 4/13/17

5 Leopard 1's (SN 54682, 54821, 54797, 54695, 54627)
2 Sexton SPH (SN 1177 & ?)
2 Abbots
M60A1 SN 10410
M901 SN C2069
M577 PAA 02870
M56 Scorpion
M3A1 Scout Car
2 FV432 with Rarden Turrets
FV432
Humber Pig
Chieftain with Abrams VISMOD
Gama Goat
T-55
BMP-1
D-44 ATG
2 M548
OT-64 APC

Under restoration - unavailable for viewing at time of visit:
USMC Sherman
Saracen
M3 Half-Track

Due to a combination of running short on time and high winds on the day of our shoot, we couldn’t get high angle images of everything.

Vagabond, those are not Panzer 61s, those are Leopard 1s!! Also, the Saracen and M3 Halftrack are under restoration as well. Additionally, there are 2 more M548s in storage

Great shots!

As Silvio pointed out, those are Leopards. All former Belgian army, the correct type is Leopard 1A5BE. The serials are in fact the registration numbers, serials are on the right on the glacis. Seems our retired Leo's popping up al around the world ( for now I know of some in Australia, USA, Poland and who knows where....).
On the other hand better than on a range as target.

Michel
