Ssssh! its about the CIA.
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.

Hmmm

An ill-tempered person full of resentment and stubborn notions about armor.

A bit short...anyone want to expand a little?

We also resent that we don't have a full-sized one at home to play as we please, get sidetracked by the obscurest of details, climb all over armor given any chance we get, know a lot of facts the rest of the world has absolutely no use for, are usually strong-headed, nitpicky, with a strong sense of humour and are sometimes hard to please... And yet we share a common- and international- bond. Wink

Oh, and we can cuss and swear with the best of them, many of us in more than one language. Mr. Green

How does that look?

I vote for replacing "ill-tempered persons" with Jens' "cantankerous"!

My extra 2 cents,
Sgt, Scouts Out!

Gee,

thanks for your vote of approval, I'm blushing... While we're at it, could we replace this terribly PC "persons" with characters? Somehow seems more fitting. Laughing

Seems a good idea... now all I need is an image of a grumpy old fart on top of something armoured.. Roy? Laughing

Jens is probably the only person on here who can figure out what I'm up to...

Cool

I know nuthink... Cool

You know, this whole thing got me thinking (always dangerous, ask any number of my various contemporaries at any given moment in time)- we need a badge!

I already have an idea, but I suck at the realisation- here's my concept, first have a look at the original:



I thought we'll have an OD background, "Curmudgeons in Armor" instead of "Central Intelligence Agency" (oxymoron city) the eagle gets replaced by a profile view of a silver/grey Mk I rhomboid tank facing left (sorta like the old collar badge), a head-on view of a T-55, and a profile view of a Leopard 1 or 2 facing right, on the white shield we replace the star with the armor triangle.

On the bottom scroll, I'd put a white star for the US, either a red star or the tricolor for the Rodina, an iron cross for Germany, the respective roundels for the UK, France and Finland, the Star of David for Israel- you get the idea, we'll have to use a lot of wingy thingy stuff, but many of these have been used for aerial recognition on armored vehicles. Lest we run out of space, I'd say we shoot for nations with an armor tradition and/or a major impact on armor design.

Whaddaya think? We could but it on name badges, patches, decals, T-shirts, hats... The list is endless. Instant recognition, fame, fortune, world domination, all ours if someone could put it into a graphic form. Laughing

How about a Tanker who is 'ordered' to apply face paint since the Infantry Bn had all their guys in paint.

(This was one of the Inf Bns that had just moved to Ft Hood from 5th ID at Ft Polk.)



It may seem trivial, but I wasn't buying the justification.

BS games always had me wondering WTF!!!
