More M1117 ASVs ordered
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: More M1117 ASVs ordered

Hi Folks!

Ran acrossed an article at Defense Update that reported the US Army has ordered more M1117s. Total contract buy stands at 1,729 vehicles with 950 already build.

The story says that "more than 750 ASVs have been deployed in the Global War on Terrorism in support of combat operations."

One new item in the report (to me anyway) is the ASV is being used by the Field Artillery Combat Observation and Lasing Teams (COLT).

I for one wonder if the M1117 would not make a good Scout vehicle?

Not bad for a ex-cold war vehicle that we no longer needed. So production was cancelled to help pay for the new Strykers. I guess that is a major example of one never knows what the next war will need.

Spot Report and my 2 cents.
Sgt, Scouts Out!

Post subject: Re: More M1117 ASVs ordered

Awhile ago I recall reading that sizeable numbers of a lengthened troop-carrying M1117 were going into Iraq for th Iraqi army. I've seen posted photo of the occassional state-size vehicle on rail transport. But the only in-country Iraqi AC photos I've seen have been of a Polish-made vehicle of similar specs (and probably much lower price). Has anyone heard-seen of the lengthened M1117 in Iraqi hands?

Hi Mike! Hi Folks!

Joe_D has seen some and has some pictures. Once he is off leave and has access to a high speed PC, maybe he will post some of them for you.
