USA (NOW V3.0!), Canada, France and Belgium AFV Registers
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.

One of the M22’s was sold. The museum has one displayed inside and a second stored in the backyard. The stored M22 is missing it’s turret. According to the young docent that gave me a backstage tour, the second M22 was converted by the Britsish for use as a personnel carrier.
The museum has a Kettenkrad formerly owned by Steve McQueen.
No sign of a 1917 and I didn't get a chance to ask. I'll try and find out about it before we leave the area.

I climbed into every vehicle I could and took interior photos as well as exterior shots. I'll post our photos soon.


Hello Paul,

I'm very interested in seeing some photos of the turretless M22 Locust. For sure, I'll ask you for permission to re-use a picture in the M22 Locust survivors PDF file.

Pierre-Olivier

Neil -

I visited the Military Museum of Southern New England in Danbury, CT for open turret day on 7/31/11. I asked one of the staff to look at the AFV registry entry for the museum and check it for accuracy.

I found out:

The museum NEVER had an M60A3.
One of the M39’s was sold to someone in England. They still have one M39 stored in the back area.
One of the M22’s was sold. The museum has one displayed inside and a second stored in the backyard. The stored M22 is missing it’s turret. According to the young docent that gave me a backstage tour, the second M22 was converted by the Britsish for use as a personnel carrier.
The museum has a Kettenkrad formerly owned by Steve McQueen.
No sign of a 1917 and I didn't get a chance to ask. I'll try and find out about it before we leave the area.

I climbed into every vehicle I could and took interior photos as well as exterior shots. I'll post our photos soon.

I took the Kettenkrad out for a spin and attempted to recreate the motorcycle scene from “The Great Escape” by jumping fences and such. After a short stay in the hospital, I have recovered sufficiently enough to type. Solid food, maybe next week and a role in Jackass 4 for sure!

Ok - I made that last part up, but the rest is accurate. LOL!

Cheers,
VB

Neil (& anyone elese interested)

Richardson Motor Pool no longer contains any armored vehicles.

Today, Friday July 29, 2011, Cobra King was finally loaded up on a heavy hauler trailer and departed Ft Knox for Ft Benning.

BTW: The RSO departed on Wednesday.

These two vehicles were the last armored vehicles in RMP and they too are now gone.

Just thought you'd like to know.
Regards
Don

Neil, Trevor and the gang -

On our way to the airshow in Michigan, we've been stopping off at AFV locations. Today we were at:

Joint Forces Reserve Center, 106 Army-Navy Rd (near Ash St) (N38 31.983 W81 55.947) M41 Walker Bulldog

There was NO sign of an M41. Went inside the bldg to look for someone to ask about it and could get no info.
I looked for the flagpole/building combination in the photo from Trevor's site and nothing matched.

Will post photos soon from the other locations we visited.

Cheers,
VB


VB,
Which town was this?

Neil


Oops! Neil it was in Eleanor, WV.

AFV register candidate?

I think you have this one already, but just in case.

Across the street from the Holiday Inn Express in San Luis Obispo. A friend thought I might be interested. See, it does make you smarter!

I don't know why it's displaying sideways. It was taken that way and I rotated it before uploading to Photobucket. Stubborn!



Pretty certain its this one?

Hello David,

yes I got your PM, thanks for it. I'm currently very busy so I just didn't have the time to update the website with that info, and I forgot to reply (sorry..).

Hello,

France AFVs register was updated today, and the new or updated information was put in yellow, so that you can easily find the new information in the document.
