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.

By popular request from a weekend archive 'dig'.

Not sure if these are 'new' but I thought pretty interesting.

First, prototypes:





of course, this is a tank that 'floats'....



An interesting personal story. In 1990, I did an NTC rotation. While in the 'dust bowl', I bumped into a former crewman from Germany. He was assigned to Ft Irwin. He mentioned that his (Vismod) Tank ID # was 432, which it turns out was the unit we served in, in Germany (4/32 Ar).

Days later, while 'In the Box', my tank was positioned in an excellent hasty defense. I was able to use a 'wadi' as a natural fighting position, and it oriented toward a trail that the OPFOR used to penetrate our positions. Sitting in the hidden position I recorded 16 OPFOR vehicle 'kills' (Tanks & PC). The last two vehicles I was able to shoot were tank #'s 432 & 433. Of course, my tank was then 'killed' by a platoon of tanks that caught me in the grill doors with point blank direct fire. (BUT I got more of them, before being 'dispatched',....an NTC goal, is to at least get a few of them before being 'waxed'.)

Not sure when this photo was taken, but notice the turret #,.....


ahhh the fond memories... Mr. Green
