Test Vehicles used at APG
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 just finished reading thru a multi-volume report.

Tracked Vehicle Performance Data Consolidation
Report No: DPS-1846 (dated Dec 1965)


"This data consolidation presents the major performance characteristics of tracked vehicles as obtained during testing at Aberdeen Proving Grounds by the Engineerung & Environmantal Test Branch."

I compiled a table of vehicles tested & RNs which gives some good dated reference information of vehicles tested at APG.




I figured someone here might be interested in this info....

Regards
Don

It's been many years, but I've seen the film. It was spectacular to say the least.

No SNs but I figured the pilot # with RN was fairly 'tell-tale'.

On the M551 SN / RN comparison, this might give one the ability to determine specific Vehicle information if the sequence runs true.

Going thru some additional documents I found these photos:




Not from APG, but AFB Ft Knox.
