Photo-M-48's (?) being rebuilt at Tooele
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 didn't know Tooele Army Depot (Utah) ever did this kind of work. Ran across photo at a Utah history site. What model are these? Or are the M47's?

Hi Mark:

A very interesting photo. Those are either M46s or M47s (the two hatches at the front are the giveaway) - I can't tell from this angle which are which, though. I wonder whether these are M26 Pershings being rebuilt as M46s?

Cheers,

Scott

I think you're right. There appears to be space for two drivers so that counts out the M48 series.

Looks like M47's to me,
No blower fan hump between the Driver's and Co-Driver's Hatches like the M46's had. 47's were the first to have the fan in the turret.

The left tank closest looks like the turret had just been pulled and hasn't been stripped and steam cleaned. That pack looks like it came from her and she still has her tracks.

Nice picture 'Weed.
