Looking for pcs of the TOW Mutt

I think I have found every online photo and walkaround of the TOW Mutt, but I cannot find a clear photo of the radios and how the TOW MGS is mounted. I can't tell how accurate the old Tamiya kit is.

Any pics or links would be great!

TIA,
Dave

I served on the TOW Mutt for 3 years.I'll see if I can find some photos showing the items you are asking about. However, I can still provide some of the information you are asking about.

1. The standard issued radio for the TOW Mutt was the AN/GRC-160.

2. The MGS was mounted with the battery facing towards the front of the Mutt. There were 2 cloth straps on the Left and right side of the MGS.

While I searching to find some photos for you. It's been nearly 40 years since I took them. Here's a link that should help you out.

If you have more questions feel free to ask me here or via email. If you send an email include Tow Jeep and Missing-Lynx in the subject line.

a good basic link is:http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/ ... htm#fig1-2
