    There were few pristine vehicles in country during my tour in '04-'05. These pictures came from an armor boneyard at a former AMF (Afghan Militia Forces) compound near Kabul. Coalition forces and the ANA were able to field some battle tanks and fewer APCs- though the majority of the armor was of the T62 variants. I'm sure that things have changed since my tour ended. The armor that I saw the most of was Soviet in origin- T55, T62, BMP, BRDM, BTR60, BTR52, a couple of PT76 light tanks and a sole T34 chassis thrown in the middle of it all.
