Bovington
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.

T48 pilot, yes, not an M48, but one of the pilot tanks:

I'm not so sure it's a pilot - I don't suppose you managed to get the serial number from it? I could only see it from a distance. This is what I wrote for its entry - my guess is they call it a T48 because that's what's written on the data plate (and US vehicles often get an official designation only a long time after initial manufacture):

Unique ID 1562: Bovington M48

M103A. It's in running order. I was told there is another M103 in reserve, but I haven't seen any picture of it:

This tank is in a dark corner, without space around. I had to use an external flash and my widest lens. Not happy about the results, but there aren't that many M46s around:

My backlog is getting bigger too. I still have to work on pictures I've took last summer Sad
A good selection of my Bovington images is available on Flickr, including original size copies. You can grab it from there anytime:

I would - at some point I'd like a load of your Bovington shots, but there's no rush as I've a big backlog (and I haven't forgotten I've still got lots more of your Full ones to do!).

Actually, this might be a good time to mention something: I've written a program to rename photos in the scheme you and I use - would you be prepared to try it out? If you could supply photos already named that would be one less step that I would need to go through.

Let me know if you would like to get a few shots of it.

Contentious. Very cool british prototype. There aren't many pictures of it around. I think it was stored in the reserve collection for quite a while (but I may be wrong):



Massimo


That's right - it wasn't on display when I visited in October 2008.

Contentious is fitted with a 105 mm gun for display purposes. Originally and during the whole trials, it had a 20 pdr instead
