USA (NOW V3.0!), Canada, France and Belgium AFV Registers
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.

Recently updated satellite imagery, circa September 28, 2014, shows (or seems to show) an M1 Abrams has been added to the collection of the Camp Atterbury Veterans Memorial.

The Abrams is located at coordinates 39.359693,-86.033835

M60 Registry Updates and Info:

BLYTHEVILLE, AR
American Legion Post 24, 232 N 2nd St (N35 55.801 W089 54.240)
M60A0 SN 1406, has RN 9B4711 - NOTE - RN is sequential with M60A0 in DECATUR, AL RN 9B4710 at American Legion Post 15, 2706 Hwy 31S (N34 33.516 W86 58.445)

WENDELL, ID
American Legion Post 41, 610 W Main St listed as an M60A3 SN 139; Unconfirmed is actually an M60A0 SN 139, RN 9B3239

MARION, IL
VFW Post 1301, 201 W Longstreet Rd
 M60A3 listed as SN 225 is actually SN 2463A

CINCINATTI, OH
Green Township War Memorial (N39 11.136 W84 39.112)
M60A3 SN 2470A has RN JJ04JX

ELYRIA, OH
American Veterans Post 32, 11087 Middle Ave (N41 19.688 W82 6.354)
M60A3 SN 4353A has RN 9B6804

LEXINGTON, KY
Veterans Park, Southpoint Dr and St Elias Ln (N37 57.386 W84 30.372)
M60A3 USA out SN 3971, AAD rebuild SN 2339A has RN JJ04F2

HAYS, KS
American Legion Post 173, 1305 Canterbury Rd (N38 52.308 W99 18.048) M60A3 SN 4280A has RN 09A94268

ALEXANDRIA, LA
VFW Post 1736, 701 Veterans Dr - M60A3 SN 3558A, RN 09A98668. 
Has SN 3538A on top engine deck cover and SN 3558A on Lower deck - so it’s likely another case of swapped engine deck cover - as I’ve seen in MA with Roslindale and Easton M60A3s and the two TN M60A3s noted above.

BALL, LA
Park, Shanghai Rd (N31 24.420 W92 24.628) M60A3 listed as SN 1294 is actually SN 4068M, RN JJ01M4

SHREVEPORT, LA
2-108 Cavalry, Louisiana ARNG Armory, 400 E Stoner Ave (N32 30.009 W93 43.466) M60A0 - SN 799, RN 9B3921

PORTAGE, MI
VFW Red Arrow Post 1527, 1920 E Kilgore Service Rd (N42 14.688 W85 33.322) SN Listed as 1093 is incorrect. M60A0 Actual SN is 1963, RN 9B5304
NOTE - listed in registry is an unconfirmed M60 in VICKSBURG, MI with SN 1963 - Vicksburg is just a bit SE of Portage.

ROYALTON, MN
American Legion Post 137, 103 N Maple St (N45 50.199 W94 17.972) 
M60A3 USA out AAD rebuild SN 2860A has RN JJ04WD

HAMBURG, NY
Couldn’t read SN on M60A0 at VFW Post 1419, 2985 Lakeview Rd (N42 42.800 W78 53.075) but would an M60A0 have an AAD rebuild SN of 4185A anyway?

WATERVLIET, NY
M60A3 SN 4195A and M5 3-inch Gun are in a park on the corner of 16th St and 2nd Ave in Watervliet - (N 42 43.656 W 73 42.070)

ETTERS, PA
VFW Post 537, 1095 Pines Rd (N40 8.723 W76 47.380)
M60A3 3314A is RN JJ020T NOT JJ02CT as listed in registry

BROWNSVILLE, TN

Rick - glad to hear you're doing better! I haven't used many of your photos on PreservedTanks.com yet, though I look forward to adding more. You can always checked what's used where via the link on your Contributor page.

Hi AFV DG! Doing better here. I'm hoping to add to the Preserved Tanks lists and it does overwhelm at times. My hobby/legacy is to leave behind my photos over the years. I do ask one thing, that they are credited to: Richard S. Eshleman. If I submit and an author needs details, email (it's in My Account here) and I hope to reply.
Always watch flickr Account Brick6757 for my submissions too. I send along a few old photos. Take care, Rick

Wow - well done! I'd love to offer to add them to PreservedTanks.com but I'm already feeling overwhelmed in a similar way to you.

Trevor -

LOL!! You can say that again!

Even with easing up for this tour on tank hunting in order to have more time to process/post galleries, we're up to 570 total stops for military museums.
That's 307 VFWs, AL Posts, Memorial Parks etc with 96 large AFV museums, 105 Air Museums (when I'll have time to post those is a mystery!) and visits to most every Naval museum or ship in the US (have a few subs left, but most capital ships have been visited - again WHEN those will be posted is also a mystery) - I've come to realize I need a full-time staff!!

We have been amazingly fortunate to have a job that allows us to indulge in our hobbies.

Cheers,
VB

Update on the Minerva, OH M3A3 Stuart-I checked the coordinates in the 2011 Register but came up blank, however a quick search shows it's now displayed at the "Minerva Veterans Memorial Park" at:

40.727316, -81.102327

Or 106 East Plain Street, Minerva, OH.

The M7 listed in Marysville, KS is located at a different park than the one listed in the Registry. Its actually in Lions Park off N 16th & North St. The GPS coordinates are incorrect as well.

Regarding the M26A1 in New Bedford, MA at Franco-American Square - as I noted in my gallery post, the SN is listed in the Registry as 1693 but the SN stamped on the tank is 922.

Hey P-O,

You're correct! I made a typo on the M4 composite - just checked the photos and it is 44480. Thanks for catching that. I've corrected the original post as well.

Cheers!
