XM551 & M551 Photos
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.

That's only the second set of pictures I've ever seen of a smoke grenade launch from a Sheridan. The first set I took myself in '71. Those old pics I recognize as being at McFarland-Oliver (from the ridgeline on the right, especially).

I see some later-era Armor Board pics among that collection, when I have the time, I'll look for any of our first laser rangefinder test project among that collection (AB vehicles can be identified from bumper markings of TEC<triangle>EBD along with the "test operation" stencils). I don't recall being photographed on that project, so at least maybe just the vehicle is there.

Thanks for posting those!

I wish I had a count of the numbers of days, nights, and meals I took there. More nights than at CTA, which were almost always daytime ops.

I am so relieved I didn't allow myself to become a WWI cardboard soldier. Laughing

David,

I had some very nice feedback about your project today from a certain retired colonel. He mentioned that your project might ought be mentioned in the Blackhorse Newletter, given the number of contributions from that quadrant. I left it up to him if he thought they wouldn't mind mentioning a commercial product. Just an FYI. Wink

That was taken in Aug 2006, when I was misled by a visitor to check out some old ranges.

I took this in 1985, the first time I visited that range.

So....that tower base wasn't dripping in poison ivy and a condemned structure then, obviously. Laughing

Great pics! I'll be studying them closely in the very near future.
