What is this?
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.

Thanks,

Thought the suspension looked familiar, didn't realize it was that old, thinking more along early '50's creation.

And there is supposedly one 'behind the fence' at Aberdeen. Where was that picture taken?

I was doing some aerial recons of the Detroit area (Google Map).

Didn't have my AFV register with me.

Ironically, the vehicles here at TACOM are probably not on the TACOM Army loan office register, it is my understanding that the vehicles here on the arsenal are owned by the CMH.

They just added some stuff to the front lawn too, the M110 is gone, replaced with a M109A6, and they put an MGS next to the M1 and added an armored HMMWV.

I'm reading M. Doubler's "Closing With the Enemy" and he makes mention of using 155mm guns and at least once a 240mm gun in direct-fire mode in taking some villages and heavy fortifications. I wondered what the 240mm was.

What chassis is this built on?

Just a click away,....

"These were the heaviest SP guns built in the U.S. The chassis for these monsters was from the M26E3 Pershing Heavy Tank."
