SAN RAFAEL World War II US Military Vehicle 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.

in this museum, it seems that there is now an M22 Locust, which is not on the USA AFVs register.. do anybody know where it comes from?

kind regards,

Pierre-Olivier

I am assuming that that is an M-18 Hellcat in the foreground. Are the kill rings artistic license? I know we had a discussion about German kill rings earlier, just find it strange to be painted on this TD.

Good catch P-O.

BTW, that Hellcat is now in Tooele, Utah - but good to know the nickname regardless...

and what about the Locust? Does it belong to the San Rafael museum?

BTW there are 3 Locusts listed in the USA AFVs register for the Military Museum of Southern New England, Danbury.
One is indoor but I've never seen any pic of the 2 others.. maybe the list shown on their website is wrong?

The M22 does belong to the San Rafael museum. However, I think the turret is bogus. When I took a few pics of it a couple of years ago, something about it just didn't seem "right".

Chris,

thanks for the info.
This Locust is neither on Neil's register, nor on my own website.
Could you please post a picture?

thanks

Pierre-Olivier

Is there still a Locust at Aberdeen, or has that one shuffled off to Ft. Lee (or elsewhere)?

I saw the Locust at the San Rafael museum several years ago when they were restoring it, so they've had it for a while. I'm not sure where they got it from nor do I recall if it has the correct turret, though.
