Re: T28 Photos
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.

"ERDL also is an acronym for, I believe, Experimental Research and Design Laboratory"

U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Laboratory (per "U.S. Army Uniforms of the Vietnam War" by Shelby Stanton). I'd also like to see more T28 photos!

Thanks, "Experimental Research" does seem a little redundant. Funny, but that term today, when applied to uniforms, seems pretty much limited to militaria collector websites. In practice, we usually called it "leaf pattern", but probably mainly to distinguish it from "Tiger Stripe".

Haven't seen the book you mention, but I did see a ~$50 coffee table book on Tiger Stripes at a gunshow last year (and they weren't even "issue"). I almost got it to try to track mine down since they still have Asian labels in them, but that seemed extravagent.

It's a decent and inexpensive overview of US Army gear for the times that you find personal gear at the surplus store and wonder what in the heck it is. It does show a picture of the "what were they thinking?" tropical tricorne hat of the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Infantry which is worth the price of admission... Thanks for the T28 photo - I haven't seen it before.

Thanks...I did find a website established for much the same purpose...lots of pics. "Vietnamgear.com" or something like that.

The book I was thinking of is "Tiger Patterns"...and it's $69.00!

You gotta' really be obsessed with Tiger Stripes to shell that out. And we thought we were being obsessive with Hunnicutt pubs!

Don, Do you have any more scans of the T28 from that blueprint stash? They'd be much appreciated.

"The book I was thinking of is "Tiger Patterns"...and it's $69.00!"
Yikes! Perhaps if it were about Tiger II camouflage patterns...
