    That might be a bit of an understatement.

    I think when both (West) German and U.S. engineers got together, they realized the Germans were using metric as a standard for parts measurement and the U.S. ones were using standard (English) measurements...

    I guess the MBT stood for "Mostly Bollux (ed) Technology. I know that it might have been a good idea but for such misdirections, and the U.S. dislike for having a foreign made driveline in the thing...It was okay when we put Merlins in the P-51, and now install Rhinemettal mainguns in the Abrams, which tank is said to be partly, or not so partly based on the development of the MBT project. The Company I worked for did development, and testing on the MBT-70, having one on site in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Not sure what the actual work was, as I was banging around in an M-60 (equipped with the English L-7 105 mm rifle) in Europe at the time.

    Kind Regards, Uyraell.
    All such misgivings of the Goodly wife are anticipated, the large garage would include a small living space for the devoted, and long suffering husband, complete with strategic levels of storage for salty snacks, and beer.

    As I understand it, when MBT70 was finally canned, Congress handed out a GAO spec for a vehicle at 1/3 the projected per-unit cost of an MBT70. Enter, stage left, the XM70, an "austere" version of MBT70, which was also rejected, but which led (allegedly directly) to the XM1, which is where the Abram's enters from stage right.
    That's about as close a recall as I have, currently.

    The suspense builds,the tension mounts, its up to $80,100.00 with 9 bids.. I cant see it going for less than 100K, though it is worth far more if its as advertised.

    A pity, TG, but then, the vehicle also represents one hell of a huge indulgence.

    For most people it sure is, but there are some well heeled bachelors here who could easily make the payments on it.... Most people who are into this type of collectible are looking for Stuarts, Shermans, and other difficult to find specimens.
