Military Vehicles will be further divided into these four sub-categories:

  • Tracked Vehicles 1946 and later based on markings
  • Wheeled Vehicles (all eras) including Halftracks
  • Ordnance (Towed only, emplaced or with Prime Movers) (all eras)

Modelers in Military Vehicles can choose from one of four skill divisions:
– Juniors (under the age of 16)

For AMPS entries, judges will only record scores for the first three Models entered in a given Group.
