MBT70 Walkaround
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.

Hi Mark! Hi Folks!

Great link! That's a great set of pictures. Looks like the seals are gone on the recoil system and the barrel has slid back and out of battery. I like the close up and detail shots of the 20mm auto cannon turret. To bad he couldn't open the hatchs and get some shots of the receiver and ammo feed system. I would think that anyone trying to build a model of a MTB70 would find a number of those shots very helpful. The last three or four pictures are of that M60A2 test vehicle setting in front of the MTB70.

Sgt, Scouts Out!

Not, strictly speaking, an M60A2 (as I'm sure you know) but a test variant with that funny hydropneumatic suspension thingy (here shown "deflated") that someone else can better put a name to.

Isn't it one of the T95 prototypes? T95E2 or somesuch? I don't have a Hunnicutt handy . . . someone help me out. Check in Abrams.

Correction: It's on the hull of one of the T95 prototypes. I don't think the 152mm Gun/Launcher was in development when the T95 was being tested.

Correct Sir! I couldn't think of the correct "T" number and was just to lazy to stop and look it up. I think Bug-Bug has it. It one of T-95 (?) pilot vehicles with the Starship turret.
