T-55 in baltimore
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.

the barrel is pushed back into the turret to save on shipping since you pay for cubic feet on roro ships

I was under the impression that it was enormously difficult to import armored vehicles with the new Customs regulations. What's the story behind this? Who does it belong to?

Yup, that makes sense but the work required to do such thing is not easy. The difference in price must be important...

It is expensive to do the work but since the breech had to be cut to US standards, it had to be removed from the tank anyway. It is not difficult importing non-US armored vehicles if you have an import license.
