Color video of Abrams's Thunderbolt VII...
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.

Hi Folks!

It is my understanding that the late war armor kits was the main difference between TB VI and TB VII.

Yes! No? Maybe?

I too stumbled on that.

As it turns out, there seems to be very few good images of TB VII, and this video is a gem for the detail interested individual.

Thunderbolt VII was an M4A3(76) which was uparmored in Jan/Feb 45. At the same timeframe that Cobra King was getting 'upgunned'.

It is C. Abrams last tank of the war. Having gone thru 6 other versions (I assume)

The site has some very cool film. I still think there is archive film of CK rolling by, but haven't found it yet.

As there seems to be a film crew in the vicinity of 37th TB during early March 45, the possibility is good of finding some late war images of CK. AND THAT WOULD BE VERY COOL!!

Regards
Don

I have not seen this at all! Nice find! Makes me want to get started on my 1/16 T-Bolt right away. Smile

Like Don I also found it by accident. Yes, VII is up armoured and also has a .50 coax, the .50 AAMG is moved at the turret top so the loader can use it and a .30 cal is set up for the TC. There is a 1/35 model of this by a Chinese company called Dragon.
Lots to look at this website-lots in color too!
