Fort Jackson SC Armor - Flamethrower Sherman, M41, M46, M5..
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.

First off the M4A1E13 Sherman flamethrower

Couldnt find a serial number, except where someone else had tried to find one by scraping the paint off a rear tow lug LOL Wink











Here's the story behind the tank - its not quite the only one of its kind, there's another M4A1E13 in the LST Building at Fot Knox.



And a pic of the Jackson T30 for good measure

I also have some pics of modern & WWII reenactor vehicles from the open house today (it was Armed Forces day around the country today). I'll try to post tomorrow.

I stopped by Camden Military Academy on my way back to find an empty pad where the M60 apparently used to be. I was told that a few years ago the board of trustees - of the Camden MILITARY Academy - decided it was "too military" and gave it back to the SC ARNG.

This M3A1 Scout Car & M3A1 Half-Track are owned by the Celebrate Freedom Foundation / Palmetto Cavalry in Columbia - I've added them to the register for the next update.

Hi Neil! Hi Folks!

Thanks for the great pictures!

M114 Lingle


Nice looking 'Lingle'! Looks like it is not missing anything off the outside. Wonder how bad the inside looks?

For all you CIA guys, check out the three black vents below the red switchs. Anyone care to guess what that is? (Note: if you saw the Gunny on Mail Call, you can not answer!)

I've discovered/realized that M46s are relatively rare - just five in the US:

Fort Dix, NJ
Fort Jackson, SC
Fort Knox, KY
Fort Leonard Wood, MO
Northlake, IL

There used to be another on in Etters PA, current status/location unknown...

Here's another of the Fort Jackson example (SN 1169 - a pretty high number actually).

I always have great difficulty telling the difference between the M46 & M46A1.....

Cool
