Delbert Davis shares with us a walk around of an M106A2 and supplies a good level of background information on this vehicle.

Delbert, thank you for the nice pictures. Could this be a M125 as the mountings at the side for the mortar base is missing?

Just did a little research and the M106 and M125 were pretty much identical except for the size of the Mortar they carried. I feel pretty comfortable calling this one an M106A2, as I got the basic information and the service history of this vehicle off of an Information Display that was sitting in front of the building. No idea what happened to the mortar base or its attachments.

the M106 was replaced in service by the M1064, the the only differenceas was that the M1064 is based on the its used componits of the M113A3 and was armed with 120mm mortar instead of the 107mm

There was a noticable size difference between the base plates for the 81mm and 4.2" tubes. If you were to see an M106 with base plate attached to the left side, you would have no doubt as to the size of weapon on board.

Makes me wonder where the mounting lugs on the side armor got off to?
