A chart of this type is in preparation to be part of the military vehicles
section of www.olive-drab.com. You can see the draft version of it at this
URL:

http://www.olive-drab.com/od_mvg_vehicle_id.html

My idea was to use pictures from actual use in the service, rather than
restored vehicles. This has run into trouble because it is hard to find
service photos of many of the vehicles. I would be glad to hear from
anyone with photos which can be included in this chart or if you have any
other ideas.

Thanks to everyone who have been sending ideas and info my way to be added.
We are getting over 100 visitors per day and slowly growing.
