Armor in the news (photos)
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 Merkavas all seem to have the over-barrel mountings for 12.7mm machine guns.

Excellent photo collection. Thank you very kindly.

The .50cal mounted over the gun is for counter sniper/manual ranging as It has been explained to me in the past.

I figured they were radio aerials tied together or looped over?

Hmm... But they're probably too wide to be antennas huh?

They look wide for antennae, but just right for "bows" over which to hang some sun cover when in static postions. Never seen this on a Bradley, but recall an M109 used to guard a junk yard that had an improvised "tent" to protect the crew from the sun when standing guard.
