US Army Air Defense Museum - Ft Sill - 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.

Great photos!

I wonder why in the museums collection aren't any captured weapons - AA guns and missile systems.

They have many captured weapons, I know for sure they have WW II Italian artillery and SPGs, they have Japanese stuff too.
It's just they aren't covered inside this set of pictures

Only a small part of the collection is on display as the museum is in a temporary location as work is being done to the buildings it is slated to occupy.

We are working on a gallery of photos from the tour we did of the storage area for the museum - including the Italian AAA truck and an important artifact from Vietnam - stay tuned!

Bialy-r - They have these captured WW2 pieces on display at the Air Defense Artillery Park located near the Field Artillery museum:

You are welcome. I honestly wasn't expecting to see one. The carriage is missing and I'm wondering if they intend to build one for it.

Hello,

very nice pictures as usual, thanks for sharing. Sorry Paul, but I have to admit that I particularly like the photos taken by Loren.
