Serial Number Guide...

Leopard 2 constructionnumber on the right hull wall in the driver compartment. In the past it (Leopard 1 and Leopard 2A4) it was a metal plate with stanced lettering which was glued to the hull wall.

Since the A5 and A6 it is a written sticker, but on the same location.

22139 is built by Machine Werke Kiel and is the 139th tank for the Netherlands.

Leopard 2 c/n NL 12118
Some tanks, for example the German ones don't have the country suffix in front of the number.

12 = indicating it was built by Krauss Mafffei Wegmann
118 = the 118th tank built for the Netherlands

Location of constructionnumber of the Leopard 2. On the Leopard 1, PRTL (Gepard), Engineer Leopard 1, Recovery Leopard 1 the location is the same.

First two digits (12 or 22) indicating the factory were it is made. 12 = Krauss Maffei and 22 = Machine Werke Kiel

In future editions I hope we can come up with some additional vehicles to list. So if you know where the serial can be found on a vehicle not listed please let me know Its a PDF so it should be usable to as many systems as possible

- bsmart
I just made it a sticky

Jim - The problem with making each vehicle type a seperate sticky is soon the stickys would overwhelm what can be displayed at one time on the screen and it would loose it's effectiveness.

I think we may need to go back and clean up the thread occasionally but unless I'm overruled by the moderator who makes the BIG BUCKS I think a single sticky is the way to go.

Neil - I'm not sure the M114 information. See my posting last night on the '4ID Museum other' thread. I found two different numbers on teh Frederick M114, I'll need to go back and look at it again and see if I can get inside and look at the data plate


A single "sticky" with Joe´s suggestion to include links to non-stickys with the relevant info is the way to go..,.it is a pain to hunt for this stuff, but it´s also a pain to have more than about six sticky threads because they become ineffective for new members regarding the important stuff like policy statements and things like that (we DO get new members ya´know...) stickys are not just for convenience. And you guys have bookmark capabilities for a reason. Best to add links to an existing thread...and Bob and I could do a better job of cleaning up some of these existing threads to weed out the old posts and just keeping the ones that include the ones that have added info. Time for some housekeeping, methinks. Better for the site...and for you guys who have to use it. It won't be editting for any other reason than readability. We don't routinely "prune" threads, but we could maybe clean up some of them a bit, to keep the "beef" and trim the "fat" once the content has been established.

And what this for a number is..... maybe a NLD linenumber or so. It is not used on the registrationpapers of the vehicle.

M24 Chaffee's have the serial number located on the front / left of the hull (as you look head on). On the two examples at Ft Hood, "Serial Number" is actually stamped in before the number. There is also a "T" number which is located on the side of the hull, just below the drivers hatch. The "T" number indicates the seqence in which the hull was built on the Cadillac assembly line. M24's built by Massey-Harris do not have numbers in these two locations.

Hi Neil,

looks like we have a subtraction to make. Bob Smart and I were in Riverton, NJ yesterday and there is no M60 and no VFW post at 16 Morgan ave. It is a private residence
here are the serial & registration #'s for the M60 at 212 American Legion Drive, in Riverside NJ 08075

serial # 4068A registration # 09A01870

Turret numbers or 'turret weld numbers' will have a 'U' added whenever the depleted uranium armor has been added.
