AFV in Greece
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.

As I recall, 206 M24s were received as military aid directly from the US in 1950. More were acquired later, including a number from Italian stocks, as mentioned in an old magazine article. M8s were received from both British stocks and MDAP, so exact numbers are hard to find.

These were donated by the Army to the museum.
But they are from Greece, not in Greece.

A small Greek company is producing decals for Greek and Cypriot vehicles. Their instruction sheets contain good pictures of the vehicles both in service and after retirement.
