Old Iron War Horse Retires
the retirement of the Armoured Command Vehicle M577A1 (ACV), known to many
as “Callsign 85C”. 1st
Combat Signals Regiment (1CSR) held a short commemorative service at the
unit on the 8th December 2011 with the 104 Sig Sqn pennant
proudly flying from the vehicle.
Callsign 85C saw most of its operational service in Vietnam with 104 Sig
Sqn. Its role has remained with
104 Sig Sqn ever since with many more armoured vehicles being added to the
unit fleet since Vietnam. ACV’s
were retired from service last year being replaced with the
Bushmasters PMV’s and M113AS4 APC’s.
Our beloved ACV is now mounted on
plinth at the entrance to 1CSR, Robertson Barracks, Darwin. See
