Ithaca Armory welcomes Cold-war era vehicle

A Cold War-era, missile-launching armored vehicle of the type used by New York Army National Guard soldiers in the 1980s and ’90s is going on display outside a local armory.

National Guard officials installed the restored M901 Wednesday morning outside the New York State Armory in Ithaca.

Known as the “Hammerhead,” the armored vehicle fired wire-guided anti-tank missiles from a mounted tube.

The vehicle going on display was maintained at Fort Drum in northern New York and used by National Guard units training there.
