START THE NEW YEAR WITH GRATITUDE It is too easy to go through the week scanning auctions and dealer listings without ever giving a bit of consideration to all the people who make the military vehicle hobby such a rewarding passion. From time to time, I have to force myself to consider how grateful I am for the years of gratification I have had in my pursuit of military relics and historic military vehicles. I would like to start the New Year with sharing a few points of gratitude. The Veterans who made all of this possible Having grown up with buying, selling, and researching military artifacts, it has been too easy to forget all those who contribute to making the hobby such a meaningful, satisfying pursuit. Sitting in an office surrounded by…

NOT ALL M37s ARE “OD IN THE DARK!” Editor’s Note: Benjamin Franklin once quipped, “All cats are gray in the dark.” Well, I will alter that for my defense, “All M37s look alike on deadline day!” In the December 2019 issue of MVM, I published a photo of an M37 with a caption about a different truck! Here is the truck I had INTENDED to print: This is Jim Hanson’s…

military vehicle air cleaners

Most common vehicles in the historic military vehicle (HMV) hobby have at least three types of filters to protect their engines and other mechanical components: oil filters, air filters, and fuel filters. In Military Vehicles Magazine issue no. 205, we learned how to service and maintain oil filters (“Bypass or Full Flow: Servicing Your HMV Oil Filter,” pp. 22-27, October 2019). This article will deal with air filters. Some vehicle service and maintenance tasks are so mundane, boring, or dirty that we often neglect them. Examples are lube jobs, checking and/or changing the gear oil in transmissions, transfer cases and axles, and draining, flushing, and renewing engine coolant, as well as brake fluid. Ironically, while these chores can be dirty, and boring, relatively simple maintenance do the most for keeping our…

Hitler’s Light Tanks (Images of War), by Paul Thomas. (ISBN 978-1526741660, Pen and Sword Military, Pen & Sword Books Ltd, 47 Church Street, Barnsley, South Yorkshire, S70 2AS; www.pen-and-sword.co.uk. Soft cover, 128 pages, black-and-white images throughout, 2019, $23.95) Hitler’s Wehrmacht led the way in armored warfare as the successful blitzkriegs in Poland and North West Europe in 1940 so convincingly proved. The contribution of light tanks such as Panzers I, II and 35(t) was critical. As the war spread to the Balkans, north Africa and the invasion of Russia, German engineers worked tirelessly modifying existing light tanks and developing new models. The growing Soviet armored threat, in particular, spawned tank destroyers such as the Marder III Panzerjäger, SdKfz 138/1 and 139. Antiaircraft variants included the Flakpanzer 38(t) and the SdKfz 140/1 was…
