MMSNE Backstage tour photo gallery
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 All,

We’ve posted a gallery of photos taken during our backstage tour of the Military Museum of Southern New England.
We got to see the:
Renault UE
M3A1
M578
2nd M22
M39 and some other assorted tidbits.

www.vgbimages.com/AFV-...515_8kcngn

Teasers:



The M39 only really came into its own once equipped with the Optional Outdoor Grill upgrade!

I'll post the general museum photos and the vehicle interior photos in separate galleries when I can!

Cheers,
VB

Its not an M22 though it shares the same chassis - Its a T18E1 gun tractor intended to tow 105mm howitzers. Though knowing that museum they will probably destroy a single and unique vehicle turning it into yet another M22 tank.

Your right but then I did say it was the T18E1 which appears to have just been an M22 hull with that added superstructure section unlike the T18 which had a purpose built front hull as in your image.

An extremely old SHOTS magazine mentions a T18E2 which apparently had a ring mount added - anyone ever see an image of this?

I don't think they have a Pz 68 there. I sure didn't see one.
