News from Ft Knox
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.

The LST building is still a part of the Patton Museum. It role in the future is still being considered, but the building is 'safe' from destruction. As a declared historicc landmark, it can not be moved,removed, or destroyed.

The old wooden museum building has long since been torn down. Over the past few years, many of the old WWII barracks that populated Ft Knox, have been removed.

Thanks for posting all the old stuff.

BTW: Photo # 101 The M24 Chaffee was part of last weeks convoy to Ft Benning. It is no longer on Ft Knox. Crying or Very sad

Does anyone know if the vehicles in the black and white photos are in their original colors?
I like the laid back look of the museum back then-take a seat and look and all the vehicles!

The old photos from the 50's do show the original condition of the captured vehicles.

From these photos one can see several vehicles that have long since disappeared from the collection. Several were destined to be returned to Germany and currently exist in restored condition. ( One of the Hummels & the 251 pioneer version )

Others were removed and supposedly used as range targets. That was the fate of one of the Sd Kfz 251/9's and one of the StuG III's.

Dan, the hatches were open on all the (indoor) vehicles and there were steps next to each vehicle so anyone who wanted to could climb in.

Surely there are more photos of those days about?

The area with tables and chairs was for the mothers to congregate while the brats roamed thru the museum.

I don't have any indoor pics (flashbulbs cost money back then Shocked ) but I have some pictues of us kids climbing on the outdoor tanks, early to mid 60's.

KY MATES M.P. currently the following vehicles:
T28 Super Heavy

M60A1 (former KY Mates Static)
M110 (former KY Mates Static)
M109A5 (Former Louisville ARMG Static)

What is the status of the Radcliff M103? Who controls it and is it expected to move?

As I understand, it is 'owned' by Radcliff. It will stay.

I also assume the M114 in E-town Legion Park will remain.

At 1000hrs EST, I observed 'Convoy 1' head South on I65, enroute to Ft Benning. Crying or Very sad

Loaded vehicles were:
1 M24 Chaffee
2x M3 Stuarts
1 M84 APC
1 LVT
1 MicV 65
1 M42 Duster
1 M981 ITV
1 MTLB
1 PT 76

Unfortunately I was at my jobsite (which overlooks I 65) and I didn't have a camera available.

I am pretty sure they will draw quite a bit of attention on the highway.

Also, I thought the M1IP & M109 were at Greenville by now... And I though the M110 was at RMP, formerly at MATES...

I had been told that the M1IP & M109 was to go to Greenville, but for some reason they are still in the Mates yard. The M110 was to stay at the Mates for static, but it too is still in the yard.

All three are the property of the KYARNG and not the Museum. I will try to make a visit to find out what will become of the vehicles, and let you know.

Point of order - I think all are the property of U.S. Army Center for Military History and jist currently assigned to the KYANG or the Museum Rolling Eyes
