Tanks "downrange"


Recommended Posts

Here's a German website, sorry, it's only in German, but if you click onto STANDORTELISTE and/or TYPENLISTE up in the middle, and if you were stationed over here, maybe you can see some of the tanks you used to shoot at downrange. They also have some good Links.

That's a very intereting website! Kinda sad, though, too.

 

Thanks for posting the link.

Thanks for the link. I remember firing Shillelagh missiles at M32 ARVs and AMX-13s at Grafenwoehr.

Judges 1:19- And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.

I found this old picture of me at the Panzer Kaserne Training Area, Böblingen 1972. They taught us how to make Molotv-Cocktails, two each, and throw at the tank.

I guess it was just a little GI sense of humor. ;)

Cool. I wonder how many duds the author had to dodge to get some of those photos.
