DONTOS-M551 Gunner!
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.

I was only holding the gunners power control handle as TW gave a quick class on 'nulling' the excessive drift out with his 'handie-dandie' jewelers screwdriver,...

Class was definitely in session today!

Thanks TW

Don

Well, hit up one of the guys,....for $12 you can wear one of 'mine'. (I designed it. The hat, The squadron logo & the coin have my artistic hand in them... )

Guess I got that 'real cheesy' ability.

Man,
That's a skill you needed to keep hidden or it got you doing all sorts of Non-tank things for the CSM or First Sgt. I always filled out "Tanking" as my hobbies and interests when filling out the welcome packet. Told my troops to keep those skills and computer skills quiet unless they wanted off a tank. Onc your a Senior NCO you can bust them out an shock folks.

I'm guessing by the cleanliness and completeness of the interior, right down to the elbow flashlight in its mount, that this is a runner!?

They drove it in a parade last year I think. Seems to run fine. For added realism the flashlight has dead batteries. Wink

Dead Batteries!!!, I almost had beer come out my nose when I read that! Those BA30-30's dont have much of a life anyway. I actually have some of the old OD green "issue" batteries still laying around somewhere. Now every battery is just what you'd buy off the shelf in appearance.
