Kelly's Heros AFV Movie Quiz
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.

I take it there arent any of these in the States?



None recovered from Bosnia/Kosovo for example?

Neil


I do know (from personal experience) that there were quite a number of M36B1 (or B2's), M10's, & M18's in Bosnia as late as 1999. However, I don't recall seeing any 'straight' Sherman's of any variant.

My observations are only limited to 'our' sector in MND-North, which only included 4 weapon storage sites in the 'RS'. 2 sites of which medium & heavy tracked vehicles were the primary stored weapons. These were in the area South of Tuzla.

0ne of the answers I received from someone in the former Yugoslavia was this: "On January 13. 1979, Shermans were formaly declared obsolute and sent to scrapyards/museums etc. They were not in the first line service since the late '60s."


A similar story has been told that memorials for partisans were distributed amongst the Yugoslav villages and towns according to that locale's supportiveness of Tito. More young fighters sent to the Partisans, the more generous the trophy vehicle for the town square. The town of Drvar where Tito ran like heck away from an SS Parachute assault, has a rather attractive black granite star monument to the same effect. But the local hillbillies shot it up during the war. I am surprised few old Shermans were resurrected by the belligerants,

One Canadian soldier did however tell me he recognized the track marks of a CDP (or other metal track) in the soft sand of a trail he and his platoon were patrolling. Didn't see the vehicle, but from his modelling days knew the track signature.

Hi Folks!

"as to the wingy--thingy. it is a bad, bad, bad, thing to discuss that type of thing here..."

It is always a good thing for AFV types to know their aerial targets so they don't shoot at friendlies.

I though the M-139 20mm auto cannon carried by the M114A2 Lingle would have been a great AAA system! Mr. Green

No, the T-28 had a nose wheel with tricycle landing gear. This plane is definitely a tail dragger.

I think someone nailed it with the SOKO 522. I knew it was a local Yugo bird but didn't have time to look up the references

I photographed this 'E4' in the former Yugoslavia in August.

Hi Richard, Welcome to the AFV DG! If you would, please resize your image (which I deleted, but not because we don't want to see it...) to 800 x 600 w x h maximum if posting as an attachment...or use our gallery or a hosting service like Photobucket. Those services will resize your image automatically here to max 800 wide and thus avoid having the members having to scroll around and wear out their little mouse legs trying to see both your image and other posts in the thread. It's a requirement we make of everybody on the site. If you want to display a larger image, you can just post a link to an image hosting service so others can click on it and view in a larger size if they wish.

Thanks!
D.
