M32 ARV
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.

I know for sure that Japan and Greece used M32s postwar as I have seen photos of them on modelers websites. I know the Nebraska National Guard had at least one in the 1950s.

I don't know about the M32, but West Germany used M74s in the early days of the Bundeswehr.

WORTHHAGERTON,
I just noticed you are in Austin, TX. I am a Sergeant First Class stationed at Ft Hood, TX currently. There are two, M74's on display here as well as 12 - M4's (some rare varients), an M36B1, and an M43 8in SP. I'm currently working doing research on all the Sherman varients as time allows. If you are ever Ft Hood way, let me know and maybe I can show you around to some of the various displays around the post. But be for warned, it will be very hard to do all in one day. Just let me know.

While I can't help much with the M32, I did research M74's quite a bit. The M74 in these pictures is located at Ft Irwin, CA. It was found at China Lake and was to be used as a target until it was found and brought to Ft Irwin around 1999-2000. It's serial number is 74159, Reg number 30140549. It was manufactured by Detroit Tank Arsenal, most likely in April 1945 as an M4A3 105mm. It was one of 1119 Howitzer tanks put into depots by VJ-Day. This M74 was converted between February 1954 and October 1955 at the Bowen-McLaughlin York, PA plant. There is a "396" on the hulls side that may indicate a BMY sequence number. There was also a data plate on the front hull with a date of 1966 that indicates a Europe rebuild.
M74's were developed after the outbreak of the Korean war to handle the heavier modern tanks. They were converted from stocks of M4A3 medium tanks and M32B3 TRV's. Their were 60 M32B3's converted to M74's and they were designated M74B1's.
The M74 was the longest serving M4 Sherman varient. Technical Manuals for the M74 were not rescinded for the active Army until 1974, however they remained in effect for quite some time with USAR and ARNG units.
I have alot of Spec's for the M74 as well if anyone's interested

- worthhaggerton

When did the M32 ARV leave the military listings.


Leave? A couple of countries still have them - Mexico springs to mind for a start... They use a modernised version called the Chenca.

Cool

Post subject: M32 ARV

Hello everyone,
When did the M32 ARV leave the military listings.
I believe that the last version was the M32B3 then there was the M74 ARV.

Where the M32 and M74 mixed in units?
Has anyone seen photos of an M32 with a M46 or M47 MBT?

What counties used the M32 after WWII?

Thanks for your help
