M551 Photo (Attention Doug K)
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.

Looks like early in 1st Sqdn. deployment of Sheridans. All the swimgear, spotlight, grenade launchers intact with minimal "body damage". Lightly modified with ACAV gunshield. Note no bustle racks and minimal exterior stowage. All that would change over time. I'd guess this was '69 or early '70 at the latest.
Notice all the asbestos sleeves for the CC cartridge bases. That didn't last long either.

Good photo of canister vs. HE-T rounds.

I think these are HEAT-T-MP rounds. The HE-T were shaped a little different.

Which would be interesting, HE-T was preferred for all but anti-personnel. Maybe HEAT was all they had in the pipeline in those early Sheridan days in VN.

Doug, Until I saw this photo I had always thought that HE-T was all they had aside from canister. So this was news to me.

I have to think that this early in the Sheridan deployment, they sent what they had. Those vehicles are still "virgins" in their configuration, what with no mods and no form of bustle rack or rear deck racks whatsoever. Note no ammo boxes on turret sides or back. This almost has to be during the '69 deployment or before summer of '70. These might even be during the "transition" or workup phase. Half of that stuff wouldn't be there beyond that, and the stuff that would be added would exceed what was lost, left off, or torn off. Laughing

PLEASE keep these Sheridan pics flowing, wherever they come from. Very nice!
