From the Editor: Tank Pogs!

Remember the Pog (milk caps) collecting fad of the early 1990’s?  If not, don’t worry, you didn’t miss much. That said, the fad was popular enough that even some defense contractors apparently got in on the game.  We recently gained possession of these Teledyne Continental Motors “pogs” depicting the AVDS-1790 tank engine, their hydro-pneumatic suspension for tanks, a generic “combat vehicles” graphic and a military fire truck.  The beer cap is included for scale.  While we think these are pretty cool, we doubt many kids were clamoring for a Pog of the AVDS-1790.
