M113 Smoke Generator and Rocket Launcher. Aberdeen 1986-1993
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.

2.75" "Sow Pods" on an M113, who'd a thunk it?

What was the intended ordnance, 10 or 17lb warheads, HE or flechette?

These were taken at the Armed Forces Day Shows in May of each year. The Grand Stand is seen in background of first photo. It was torn down in late 1980's for "safety" reasons, so all vehicles shown were at the Ordnance Museum and the Main Front was no longer used until last year. They still lack Grand Stand seating, and supposedly only issue 1500 tickets now. Rick

Doug,
I probably will find My M113 Variants folder someday, but more than likely, have little on the XM1101. This was the only vehicle I ever saw and from 1993 to 2009 my files had been in storage. Like many Aberdeen items it was a one-of-a-kind experiment and I'm not sure which ordnance was intended for use in it. I have some other odd ball stuff, just have to find it! Rick
