Unknown M3 half-track with gun or howitzer
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.

For a second there I thought it was an Argie M9 with a 105mm howitzer, but when you mentioned Thailand...
The gun is a Bofors 105mm piece, apparently the m/40 model, on an International Harvester M5 or M9 halftrack.

The Americans paved the way with their own Halftrack based gun/howitzer motor carriages, culminating in the T19 with the 105mm howitzer. The Israelis, Argentinians and Thais all followed in their footsteps. Wink
