Observations: MICV 65
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 found this photo while in the Library, a few days ago.



I picked up on some differences, having taken a few photos of 'our' MICV 65. It makes me wonder if there were different floatation 'packages'.

Exhibit A:


Exhibit B:


Exhibit C:

MICV-65 was actually the program name that encompassed various vehicles being developed as a replacement for the bog standard steel box apc. Besides the vehicles Don has imaged others in the program included the XM734

I have these particular vehicles listed as the XM701 (original vehicle with footsteps), XM701E1 (with flat sides & sideskirt) and XM701E2 (with additional flotation)

I wonder why it had no idler wheel in the back?

"Pacific Car & Foundry" PACCAR makes Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks today.

Might be like that restrospective mod they did to the Pz I - gives maximum stability in a short length (to reduce 'bucking').

Or maybe they borrowed the concept (and some parts) from the M107/110/578 series of vehicles.

Those road wheels look very familiar.

Well since Pacific Car & Foundry made the M107/110/578, like Joe said they used parts off of them.

The SN given is a little unusual. Its known to be pilot number 5. Typically SNs are pretty literal - 105 would mean the 105th one built... In this case I know that's not the case...

Might explain some of the High SN's seen on T-114 data plates,

Although I think that Tennessee "Lingle" with the the "T" Data plate affixed outside is a local creation.

There was a question IRT the rear firing ports, so I did some exploring and came up with this.
