From THE Motor Pool
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.

One question about the MICV 65; Are those gun ports on the rear of the vehicle??? never saw that before.


As each has a vision block above it, I think that's likely. Good observation.

Yes those are firing ports. I assume that they are designed for the 'port firing device' , which was initially issued with the M2 / M3 Bradley.

The area under the engine louvers looks different. It looks like there is some kind of horizontal access panels/doors there. Maybe They are normal but it doesn't look right to me

A trick question? A crime scene after somebody's radio has been boosted?

I think I know what I'm supposed to say, but I don't recall a light there, and the turret ventilator is not where it's supposed to be, so I'll guess some early prototype or something else altogether.
