M4 "Jumbo" guarding Vilseck back gate
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.

It's an hour away, but I could go get some more. I get there about once a month, but I just have to remember a camera.

When I was in Germany in the 70's there were some tanks at Graf by the theater. Are those still around? In particular I remember an M26 tank and a halftrack with quad 50's.

That's right, see the G104 group for more info.

120mm, I'd like to use that photo on PreservedTanks.com as I'm currently writing up Rose Barracks. Let me know if that's a problem.

Trevor,

Just making sure, but you DO know that Cobra King is presently at the Ft. Knox Museum in some stage of disassembly/reassembly/restoration?

I've started an entry for Cobra King here:

UID 1683: Cobra King, Fort Knox

120mm, I've added your photo to it - let me know if that's a problem.

Sure, but I don't just write up places that have tanks currently but each place that has previously had (at least 2) tanks. So I'm currently writing up Rose Barracks, Vilseck, and Ferris Barracks, Erlangen, as previous locations for Cobra King and the M4A1 that was with it. Currently the Cobra King entry (link above) is just a placeholder that has photo's of it at Erlangen and Vilseck, and when it was removed. Later I'll write up a fuller history (including Don's photo's and updates since its arrival at FK).

Trevor,

I'd meant my comment mostly in jest. After I'd written it I saw your other posts about what you were doing, so I pretty much guessed what was up. If it sounded critical or snarky, it wasn't intended to.

Not a problem - it was a fair point.
