Armor Warfare Conference - Ft. Knox - #1
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.

At the end of April 07 I spent several days at Ft. Knox and was able to view the Armor Warfare Conference. Thought some of you might like to see some shots of this. Much like an auto show, but the hardware is somewhat different. Mr. Green

Would that the publishing industry trade shows I attend were half as interesting as this one . . .

Hi Bob! Hi Folks!

Was that M1117 a standard ASV or it that one a bit longer? The row of seats in the back doesn't sound like the type of M1117 the MP have.

Very interesting!

Seems to me there is a 'stretch' version used as an APC by the Iraqi army.

Its the normal length - the change around of seats etc is due to the fact that its an RSTA version based on the latest production hull which is also used by the ICV (Iraq Combat Vehicle). That mast on top of the turret is missing its 'box'

Cool

Hi Roy,

Jim is well-versed in his vehicle identification and there's not much I can add, although you might be interested in this newsletter from Ft. Knox:

Check out the photo of the XM 1117 on the last page just for fun. Smile
