Ft. Snelling Military Museum - Pics #8 (finale)
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 Bob (A109) Hi Folks!

As individuals, we know only bits and pieces, but as a group WE know EVERYTHING! Razz Razz Razz Razz


Why do I have this suspicious feeling that more than one of us has been called a know-it-all by his contemporaries- and not just once? Wink

Everybody knows a know-it-all... He may be as close as the mirror. Laughing

Hi Folks!
That is a M106. The brackets on the side are for the larger part of the base plate and the support arm that holds front leg out in front of the base plate for dismounted operations. Note the smaller center part of the base plate is carried on the right rear fender.

The M125s carried the base plate on top the hull, in front of the cargo hatch to the left rear of the TC's cuplola. There was a cover that protected the tripod which was carried in the area between the cargo hatch and the engine grills to the right of the TC's cuplola.

Spot Report!
Sgt, Scouts Out!


D'oh- I was so fixated with the roof hatch mounts I didn't even notice the brackets... Now where is the smiley that bangs his head on the wall?



*cough, cough*
Not, M59, but M113 family. Maybe an M106 type as I think the mounts on the side may be for the mortar baseplate. Without a view of the top hatch, hard for me to say for sure, but I think I see hinges for side opening hatches consistant with mortar carrier...somebody else will know.

Anyone notice something unusual about the C-130?


"Roman Nose" A-Model with three-bladed props, why do you ask? Cool


Yea an A model, only the first 220 or so of the thousands of Hercs had the 3 blades Sort of strange to see what appears to be a later era camo job on the early model plane

Bob! We see later era camo jobs on AFVs that never carried such paint jobs! Why should the Air Force be any different?

Considering how old and the uses the first C130s were put to, I am surprised to learn that an "A" model is still around.

Actually, I seem to remember another one that was recently seen at an airshow in the US that was grey- or am I confused again and it was a historic photo?

Incidentally, in its rebuilt form as a later model, there should be a few more A-models around, IIRC they were converted to C-130Es and AC-130s later in their career.
