Interesting Finds...
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.

Yup...

Some of the hull configuration on the Ontos came from the M-56 Scorpion. The early prototype had the same roadwheels.

Well officially..."no it's not, it's a target" un-officially <wink, wink> it's an M-422A1 Mitey Mite.

But it doesn't really exist even though it really does <he says while peering out the window looking for the black Suburbans Laughing >
