Vehicles from Dutch Cavaleriemuseum-Amersfoort
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.

Post subject: Vehicles from Dutch Cavaleriemuseum-Amersfoort

Thanks to my gracious host, Marcel, I just returned home with some interesting shots from a military museum with some very nice displays. I'll get them up here as I get a chance to resize and edit...but first up...What's this? Looks like it might be a flamethrower on a Shermanesque chassis. I don't see any recoil mechanism, and what the heck is that over the muzzle, anyway? Plates were welded into what looked like should house a secondary weapon in that pod on the vehicle left side.





...more to follow as I get a chance....

Doug

Canadian Ram perhaps? Armed with a 6-pounder.

Re: Ram tank,
Doug, May I use your photo on my RamTank page? Also, Is there any way to get the number, stamped in 1 inch (2.5cm) letters on the front of the final drive chassis - usually on the mudguard support bar that crosses horizontally?
This Ram may ne an elusive Command/OP tank and there are few (if any) survivors.

You may, indeed, properly credited (Nice website, BTW). If you want higher res, PM me your email, I have a much better version. Also, the numbers I saw were on that rounded plate that forms the glacis, and are upside down. In high res, you might be able to make them out. I thought about a close up, but passed. MarcelP, on this forum, might be able to get you the numbers you want as he is stationed at that post...I think he'd be willing to help with a numbers search...he's a real good guy. If needed, I can email him.

Hereby to be known as the "Gavin-Lingle" (by me, anyway), I took some shots of the YPR-765 family (this may be a later version...I'm not an expert). The more I examined this vehicle, the more I wonder if we missed the boat on a satisfactory M113-M114-XM800 scout vehicle (prior to the Bradley) in a tight package. The closer I look, the more appealing this vehicle is. I don't know the service record, but I should think there would have been a role for this in our service, at least at one time.

The numbers I need are stamped on the tube that runs across the glacis. I would be most grateful if you could ask MarcelP on my behalf.

Will do...send me your email and I'll send both pics I have in high res...


(You can easily make out the numbers in the high-res version that show, I checked)
