US Government destroys vehicles at former Danbury Museum
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.

Post subject: US Government destroys vehicles at former Danbury Museum

According to facebook posts from the Military Experience Museum Inc, the government owned vehicles that resided at the site of the former Danbury Military Museum in Connecticut have been scraped. The Center for Military History and TACOM decided that they would neither sell these vehicles, nor loan them out to a new museum, opting rather to destroy them. I don't have a complete list of the destroyed vehicles, but a rare MBT-70 prototype was put to the torch, along with some former APG vehicles. More information can be seen at www.facebook.com/MilExpMuseum/

Walter, Thanks for the update. Page 49 in The USA Historical AFV Register in Com-Central site shows what vehicles were at the former Museum. Sad day when TACOM scraps historical vehicles, really no excuse! Rick Eshleman.
