Help/Pics Needed - Former Quantico Marine-Air Ground Museum
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 also just found the following for the King armored car (you can also just see the Roebling Alligator 3 in the background of one pic)

How about something from ... the late 70s!? From genuine Kodak paper... ah the good old days when the hatch on the T34/85 was open for viewing.

Neil,
I have some prints of the T-62M, T-69 Command Tank, BMP-1, T-72, and M60A1 that I took back in '92 or '93. Would scans of them work for you?

I really don't know. We can compare it with the one in my pic.

I'll scan and post the pics later tonight under a new thread so this one doesn't get too backed up.

Neil, it's done - the Marine Aviation Museum vehicles are now in the PreservedTanks database:

Marine Corps Aviation Museum

Each tank gets its own entry, but if you're also interested in the other vehicles (LVTP-5, HMAs, etc.) then look through the location photos. (Note I've given it the new name just to save me trouble later when I update it).

I hope it's what you needed.


Supertsar - is there any chance I could add your photo's? It would be great to show the vehicles in earlier times.

Many thanks Trevor, superstar, and Chris!

FYI, I am still looking for the following from this museum:

LVT4 USA std?
M2A3 light tank USA std? SN 312?, RN 30433
(Transferred from the U.S. Army Ordnance Museum at Aberdeen Proving Ground to the Marine Air-Ground Museum in 1961. One of four surviving M2 light tanks)
M3A1 Scout Car USA std?
M29 Weasel USA std?
Roebling Alligator 3 USA std?

Little surprised no one had pics of the King armored car? (besides the link I found) or the Roebling Alligator?

And can anyone identify the designation for this marginal terrain vehicle?

I'm going to guess one of the XM579 MTV's - 7 Prototypes Made - 2 Surviving

Here is the other one:

Design is referenced in the amphibious vehicles book that I previously posted.

Its close, but this appears to be the second XM759

preservedtanks.com/Ima...hotoID=200

I'm guessing the other one is an earlier prototype model?

Ah, I didn't realize that they were different ones (wasn't looking close enough). I'm going to guess that it is an earlier prototype. I was always under the impression that there were two surviving prototypes including the one at the Mechanized Museum but I had never even seen pictures of the ones that were rumored to have been at Quantico until now. So make that three surviving examples unless someone knows otherwise?

The funkier looking one definitely could be an earlier prototype, judging by the windshield shape on it compared to the one in these drawings.
