"Seven color photos of the XM-1 Fire Control Test Rig circa late 1970s or early 1980s"

I'd love to know the dates, exactly, just for curiosity. I have reasons to doubt " '70's" however, but "late '70's" leaves some margin for error.

Looks like M60A1 in background, maybe Joe D. can confirm. If concommitant with A1 and not A3, then I could well be wrong.

Late 70's would be accurate. I remember the desert testing phase at Ft Bliss in 78/79.

Check out the Army Dodge pick ups.

You're right, never set foot in one of those pickups, though. Had my own G.I. issue Internat'l Harvester Scout, or used M151A2's when I DEROS'ed.
That Kaiser Jeep based thingy (M-715) was pretty cool, too (the one we called the "five-quarter").

Lack of MERDC camoflage on the other vehicles dates it to late 70's, I think. Is this actually some interim MBT-70/XM-1 development model? It looks like it has features of each.

Nope, its just the original competitor Chrysler XM1 - GM also had an XM competitor. The Chrysler model was selected and the turret got changed.

But you're right, the original Chrysler turret does have some resemblance to the MBT-70/XM803 turret...

IIRC the Chrysler XM-1 was being tested around 75-76. I don't have my references with me right now.

BTW, a more accurate title would be, "Making sure the Fire Control System developed for the US Army's MBT70/XM803 adapts to the Chrysler XM-1" Laughing

Chrysler couldn't even make FCS's economically for the M60A1.

I had been watching these photos before they were listed here. i definitely didn't expect them to go for over $55!
