Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This might be a good place to ask. Chap on a modelling forum has the following question:

    Basically, I guess the question is was it just an IR bulb, meaning that visibly you could see the mirror from the front of the vehicle, or was it a big IR lens at the front end?

  2. the outside glass is black with a slight redish tint..the bulb i cannot remember sorry.
     
  3. Tell him to just paint it gloss black!!
    You might be able to help me with an (nearly) unrelated question, C.T...........
    Did the US Army fit a 105 to the M48? I'm sure they did but a mate of mine says not! Incidentally, I drove one in 84 when the Nat. Guard used them - Considering it was the same generation as the Cent it was a pleasure to drive and its engine and driver controls seemed a generation ahead!

  6. Thanks for that.........was it the M48A6 though. Good tank, I thought. Easier to drive than a Chieftain.
