Hello all,
I was going through some stuff and found the 1980's Ft Knox Idea of load plan for the M-60 (it belonged to my dad). Its pretty cool since it has the BII and where it goes and what the good looking 19E of the day looked like. I think this would be a great resource to share with the releases of the M-60's as of late. So I scanned it in and want to post it somewhere, its in PDF.

So does anyone know of a good public document hosting site? Any help would be appreciated

Id love to see that!

Easiest way might be to make the pages images and use photo hosting.

Try this one .. (free). https://postimages.org/

Otherwise, Microsoft OnDrive, iCloud, Google Docs, etc but not really as friendly as just showing them as images on this board. A lot of people acc sing w mobile devices might not have Adobe or whatever, but images are pretty universal.

We followed it more often than not and most photos of fully stowed tanks show them following the load plan too. The interior pictures are good because they go beyond just the BII to the crews individual items. Like what should I put in my CVC bag and where's the best place to stick It? I have both the M60A3 and M1 ones.

I agree, we left most of our gear on the tank stowed where the load plan and battalion load plan told us to. We had some additional gear, like the ICE packs (Individual Chemical Equipment with MOPP suits and other chem gear), the 155 ammo tube we kept our GDP maps in, Coleman stove, A and B duffel bags for each crewman, case of MRE, etc. that was left off the tank until we went to the field
