AFVID
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.

Hey Dontos,
Did you appropriate these slides from the Master Gunner school house at Knox? Look very familiar with the exception of the last slide. I will pass on the contest.

Actually several years ago, a neighbor was 'cleaning house' and gave me several hundred slides. I have just started going thru them. Most likely you are correct.

The last one is only a few years old.

Anyone got a clue what #5 is?

OK, I'll play,
UDESS XX20, Sweden, 120mm Gun. Was an experimental that I believe came out 15 years ago. It's one of those stump the chump pictures you use for that smart ass young troop during AFVID. I always liked showing the Cheiftain with no skirts playing aggressor.

Thanks Bug,

Damn, they actually built that thing...!?

Actually I believe the drawing may have been a concept drawing.

It sure looks like dual - mini Marders,....

Thanks Bug'

Taking a stab..... (Not looking up anything, so please be gentle with me.)

1) Maybe an MBT-70?
2) AMX-30
3) Marder?
4) M60 (early) having a very bad day?
5) Nope, not even going to guess. (Looks Swedish.)
6) AMX-40?
7) M48A5?
Cool Mostly T-62s? No idea abot the one at the front of the line.

Soooo.....have i just singled myself out for being a moron? (If not, i'm sure i can provide more evidence.)

Hi Folks!

1. Chieftain, British, rifled 120mm cannon
2. AMX-30, French, 105mm, but not the NATO L-7 type.
3. Marder IFV, 20mm auto cannon in center turret, 7.62 mm machine gun in a rear pod.
4. M-60A1, USA, 105mm, I agree, looks like it is having a bad day.
5. Never saw that drawing before, but do remember seeing the photo that Buglerbilly posted.
Didn't remember country or weapon size
6. EE-T2 Osorio, Brazil, I think that is the 120mm version rather that the 105mm type.
Check out the end connectors on both sides of the tracks....duck bills. Surprised
7. M-60, IDF, 105
8. First vehicle, Iraqi copy of a Chinese APC (I think).
Next five tanks, the 'V' shaped splash board would make them T-72s, Iraqi, 120mm

Spot Report!
Sgt, Scouts Out! Smile

I wondered if #4 was an Israeli M-60A1. I know they replaced the commanders cupola to reduce the height on most of their vehicles but I was wondering if the picture is from the '73 war when they received a bunch of vehicles in a rush resupply from U.S. stocks and may have used some without extensive modifications

Other than that who am I to question our scout Smile
