The definition of 'Heavy Metal'....
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.

Many may not agree, but Iron Maiden is the epidomy of 'Heavy Metal' music, has survived the test of time, AND include armor (or armour) content.




The Trooper....



(Onward into the valley...) is perhaps THE ultimate Cavalry/Armor attack tune!!!!

Then theres this.....



Okay, Okay.....I'll shut up now.... Mr. Green

Oooh, I don't know, I'm kinda partial to the ride of the Valkyries myself, with the 1812 ouverture running a close second, gotta love music that uses real guns for percussion- oooh baby... Mr. Green

Looking at Wagner's life, I have a hunch it's been played before anybody ever even dreamed about the Air Cav- I just can see a monocled Prussian officer playing it on his gramophone while overlooking the frontlines... Wink

We could also have a ballet troupe of nimblefooted M41s doing their deed to Franz von Suppé's "Light Cavalry"- where are the computer animators when you need them? Laughing

OMG! I't amazing what you can find on YouTube!

Might not work for the charge, but maybe for the after-after-action report....

www.youtube.com/watch?...ed&search=

...'course, some chemical assistance, a cow-bell, and the next 8-10 hours off will be required. (I guess you had to be there...this played a lot better in 1968! Mr. Green )

Little Wing (SRV Style)

I was fortunate enough to see Stevie Ray Vaughn twice before his death. Truely Awesome!!

My vote: Kickstart My Heart by Motley Crue.

And as for tank props on stage, this was done by Kiss in 1982-83.



And a video:
Eric Carr drum solo, "War Machine" intro.

With Classical music in mind.....

OK,

for you friends of noise disguised as music (my buck stops with Aerosmith, ZZ Top and a couple of others, heavy metal does nothing for me), I present a few clips:

The proof that Brits don't tan:

This stirred up some unrest back then:

Best music video featuring a military vehicle: (ooh, you'll hate me for this)

For my fellow calendar challenged members, no video but Cher with 16 inch rifles aboard an Iowa class with the appropriate "If You Could Turn Back Time"

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!! Mad Mad Mad

Have a few shots of 'ANGELS MILCH', I'll buy.... Mr. Green



( for the uneducated,.... ANGELS MILCH is quite a disgusting drink in the Hessen region. I don't think it is available anywhere else. I only knew of it being offered a a little dance club in Langgons. )

I love it when a plan comes together... Strike one and another notch on the grip. Mr. Green

Thanks for your generous offer, but I'll pass, I've been as good as on the wagon for ages now and Engelsmilch never was my weapon of choice. Shocked I'll hoist another mug of coffee in your honor- da real stuff, not what passes as such in the US... <shudder>
