Future Panzers
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.

The Marder goes under the designation of VTS-1, see this image........whether this is related to or the same as the swedish one I don't know?

Thats it. During a 'partnership' personnel exchange, I got to drive the regular Marder in a tactical environment while 'we' trained at 'Bonnland' (the MOUT site at Hammelberg). The story of the 105 test came up then.

The Plt Sgt related how the turret ring and hull weren't strong enough to hold up to the 105 recoil. Apparently it caused the hull to crack.

Just another 'soldiers tale' (had to leave out OLD Shocked , in respect to the present audience... Wink

God I'm good (he says smiling) Cool

This is the bugga..........the VT1-2 (VT = VersuchsTrager)........

That appears to be the vehicle in question. I was mistaken about the calibre of the armament, but everything else sounds right.

Thank you kindly for the pictures and the data!
