T49 at Fort AP Hill
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.

I made a little pit stop at the gate at Fort AP Hill today... Wink

For those that dont recognize it, the T49 was an attempt to make a 90mm gun-armed M41.

Neil, what is the access situation there? I've wanted to stop by but didn't know what could be seen by the public.

The security guard said we could take pictures as long as we didnt point towards the gate or post... Yes, I took the instructions a little liberally with the first pic Wink

Thanks for the pics Neil. I've always heard of the T49 but never really saw a clear picture of one.

Almost (and I do mean almost) looks like a Mini M47. Mr. Green

I'm reading Hunnicutt's "Light Tank Vol 2" and it discusses this vehicle. Had the coincidence range finders. I think early versions had a machine gun mounted on each side of the bustle. This is a great find because they sure didn't make many of these! Mr. Green

I've known for some time that its been at Fort AP Hill, but never made a trip due to the reported restrictions. I was on my way to Petersburg, and decided to check it out on a lark...

Hunnicutt identifies a T49 in an APG storage lot - it may be the one at Fort AP Hill or possibly behind the fence somewhere at APG.

I went back and read again and found that another M41 prototype, the T-37, was the one with the bustle machine guns. I think it had the 76mm gun.
Also the T41 had them.

Can you get on base at all?

Don't they have Boy Scout Jamborees there? I was thinking it would be best to just wait until the next Jamboree - you could probably have free run of the place then.

They said yes, during the week. Sounded like the visitor center was closed on weekends.

Nice pictures Neil,

Always nice to find a rare bird. Interesting how they had to build up the turret for the rangefinder, since it would have to be above the recoil mech/breech. Doubt if it was linked to a M13 fire control computer, Just wouldn't be any room for it. I imagine the TC just announced the range and the gunner used a the telescope ballistic reticle. You wouldn't happen to have a picture showing the gunner's periscope/ right side turret top better?
