The announcement of the AMPS national show in Atlanta has now been made. Even before this "official" statement was posted, though, I and some friends had heard questions and concerns regarding the theme "American Civil War Generals". Some folks seem to think this theme is overly World War Two AND Allied centric.
So, I decided to take a few minutes and jot down the list of vehicles, their users and service life as best my memory serves. I hope this is helpful and also, perhaps, clarifying. For simplicity I have only included "gun" or "cambat" versions to keep the list, well, you'll see... if all goes well, I hope to see you all in Atlanta.
