NEW M50A1 Ontos Book + M48A3
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.

This book would have not been possible without the enormous help of Don (Dontos).

Best wishes,

Hmmmm....news to me. Don, David....what's the word on this?:

"What happened to the Ontos?
The Marines deactivated the Ontos from Vietnam in May 1969. A few of the Ontos were left in Vietnam and turned over to an Army Light Infantry Brigade near Tam KY. The Army ran them until they ran out of replacement parts. They then made them into fixed bunkers. The remainder of the machines in Vietnam were loaded into ships in May of 1969 for return to the US. The crews were reassigned to various Marine Infantry Battalions."

HUH..... Shocked

I don't know nuthing.... Cool

I guess you need to buy the book and find out.... Rolling Eyes

HA HA HA

Actually that is true, but unfortunately just one of the interesting sub-stories in Ontos History that is still evading me.

D Co 16th Armor, 173rd Abn. to be exact. I know of one eyewitness to an Army airlift of 'Army Ontos' in 69-70, but specifics are yet to be uncovered.

My old website had this info, nothing new there....

Regards
Don
