Knox T28 History
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.

Post subject: Knox T28 History

I was going to include this in the notes for the AFV Register:

"One of two T28 pilots built in 1945. Believed to be the first pilot, which was located at Aberdeen Proving Ground until at least 1946, then at Fort Belvoir by at least 1951. The T28 was “lost� for about 20 years (believed to have been scrapped) until it was found at the Combat Developments Research Lab range at Fort Belvoir in 1975. After its discovery, the T28 was recovered by the Patton Museum. The other, second T28 pilot is believed to have been destroyed by fire during testing at Yuma, Arizona c1946."

Thoughts, comments?

Neil

That probably has enough weasel words ( 'believed to be' , etc) to keep any lawyer happy :-). Seriously it sounds good I might have said 'after it was re-discovered' but other than that I think it covers all the points needed

When you think that the Pershing had some difficulties to go through Bailey bridges, you can imagine what technical problems this one would have caused to US Engineers...

Hi Folks!

I bet the Chief of Engineers didn't want that thing around. My guess would be that, if any of them had made it to the ETO, each unit would have needed it's very own special bridging group of engineers to support that monster.

Maybe something like the following:

Super Heavy Assault Battalion
A Co: three platoons of four vehicles each, T-92 SHT.
B Co: standard Medium tank company, each platoon with three M4 75mm vehicles and two M4 105mm How vehicles. Mission to support by 75 mm HE and 105 smoke.
C Co: 10,000 engineers with bulldozers, road graders, cranes, and 50 heavy trucks loaded with steel 'I' beams to build bridges with.

Just dreaming folks! Rolling Eyes
Sgt, Scouts out!

In one of my vintage copies of AFV News, there appeared the Ft Belvoir story, and it was a 1LT doing inventory of targets out on the ranges, took his job seriously enough to actually go out and sight them before checking them off; kept on looking or maybe found it and it was not listed, at any rate it was "re"-discovered accidentally.

...and one can only imagine how rigorous the selection process for crews would have had to have been. Real Crème de la Crème sorts that the Army would not have wanted to spare from other high priority missions. A rare example of such talent assembled in one location can be seen here, in this undated photograph, recently declassified (orginal obtained from an undisclosed source). Wink




No moderator-induced monkey business intervened in the modification of this thread.....honest! Rolling Eyes )
