Ft Story's LARC-V
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.

Post subject: Ft Story's LARC-V

I went to Ft Story last weekend. Very small post with no displays to speak of except I did come upon this LARC-V that was by the two old light houses. After quickly looking around I climbed up inside and snapped some pictures of the controls and data plate. Built April 30th, 1968. Ft Eustis has a couple LARC varients but not one like this, and I thought this type was the most common. Here is a sad side note I found concerning LARC-V's;
"There were 968 units originally built. As best records can indicate, over 600 of them were sank, just as merely a means of disposal [when the U.S. departed Vietnam in the '70s]."

Jeff, did you see the seawall built from dukw's. Locate this structure which was a 3" AA emplacement and look into the embankment from the ocean side. You will see the remains of many DUKW's.

Back in the early 60's my dad worked at Cape Canaveral and we lived at Patrick AFB, Florida. There was one of these machines there. I seem to remember I was told it had something to do with the space program. Maybe recovery.

Armyjunk,
Yesterday I returned to Ft Story and found the structure you speak of. There has been much deterioration and it has collapsed. I climbed all over that dune to include the vegitation above and only once did I "think" I saw what might be a portion of a DUKW, but I kind of doubt it. Look at the last picture of that area and you can see in the fore ground a section of metal and a few feet behind it, what might be a metal bow sticking up.
I have also included a picture of the old LARC ramp that was used for launching and recovering the beasts. It now leads into three motorpools, of which I am parked at the entrance of.
