Something odd going on here....
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.

Hi Folks!

Found this Bradley over at the US Army Images site. I found the capton interesting. The vehicle belongs to the 1092nd Tac Psy Ops Tm of the 155th BCT. Psy Ops? OK, they get shot too. You can make out the bumper markings in the enlarged photo over at Army Images. Looks like 2-1 Cav on the left and H34 on the right. Still OK, lots of mix and matching going on with the war.

The odd thing. Shocked What is that thing in the end of the 25mm gun barrel? Neutral



Odd Spot Report!

Roy,
Got a direct link for a better look?

Almost looks like a roll of tape that's been left hanging...dust control, maybe?

That is a muzzle dust cover(of sorts). Its light weight plastic that inserts in the muzzle to keep dust out of the tube.

Its able to be shot off if the need arises.

Hi Doug! Hi Folks!

Here is the direct link to the Army Images site.

Roll of duck tape? At least you were thinking military. When I first noticed it, I though it looked like a TV remote control suffed into the flash suppresser. I guess I have been laying on the couch to much.

Thanks Don for putting my mine back on track. Dust plug makes sense now that you have my mine back on the right track. If a Bradley crew is using a dust plug, must mean that they are not firing the cannon very much and dust build up inside the barrel has become a headache for them.

Learned something new today!
