Two tanks in afghanistan
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.

Post subject: Two tanks in afghanistan

The following wrecks were seen at MGRS 41S QS5840 0810. Nearest place is called Spin Kechah

T-54
T-62

In the place KHORMA is also a tank located but I have to find out what type.

Both tanks are in the Uruzgan province

At the FOB RIPLEY gate is a BM-21 and a D-44 howitser s/n 751724 (built in 1944)

Regards,
Lesley

41SQS58400810 computes to 65°45'09.777"East and 32°34'48.931"North, 4070 ft above MSL. If you are using Google Earth, it is about 7 nautical miles west south west from the published airport at Tirin Kot (ICAO OATN).

Les, OPSEC - be careful not to publish places where friendly forces might operate.

41SQS58400810 computes to 65°00'00"East and 32°00'00"North, xxxx ft above MSL. If you are using Google Earth, it is about ? nautical miles north south west east from the published airport at Tirin Kot (ICAO OATN).

Les, OPSEC - be careful not to publish places where friendly forces might operate.


I have to pull in my horns here. My posting is a bit hypocritical. I scolded Les for doing the same thing I'd just done.

The bad guys know where friendlies will be, and as IRAQ and GoogleEarth proved, the net has everything a fellow needs. I used two sites to extrapolate the one piece of information given. Coord converter and general location -
geoengine.nima.mil/geo..._roam.html
then - www.fallingrain.com for the place and spelling variations.

I understand from Lesley that he'd already checked there wasn't an issue with that information.
