Here is a tank that is in front of a VFW Post in Ocala, FL.  It was repainted about 5 or 6 months ago.  Richard

Here's a photo of a sweet M60A1 Rise/Passive Main Battle Tank parked as a monument at the entrance to Camp Grayling, MI.  This is the model tank that I cut my teeth on as a 2nd Lieutenant Armor Platoon Leader in the late 1970's.  Great tank; loved the 105mm main gun and the M85 .50 cal commander's MG with telescopic sight.  Back in those days, a unit could fire training and service rounds during gunnery which occurred two times per year. Good times. That tank required real skill on the part of the crew, with a coincidental range finder and no thermal imaging. Great experience growing up as a young man. There were some damn good NCOs that will killer gunners with that gun system.

 

great pic. I trained on the M60A1, 69-75fort  Knox.     Ky. N.G. That track played a very important part of my life. now i am a tank NUT, over 50 1/48 & 1/35 models with no end in site. thank for posting

Here is a photo of a nice Assault Tank M4A3E2 Jumbo (Jumbo Sherman). Only 254 of these bad boys were produced, so it is nice to run across an example.  It is at Fort Carson, Colorado in front of the armored brigade combat team's HQ.  There is a wealth of information about the Jumbo Sherman at the following website: http://www.tanks-enc...bo-assault-tank

 

This particular Jumbo does not have the track end connector extensions (grousers) and it is fitted with the 75mm main gun.  The folks at Fort Carson have this misidentified the tank as an Easy 8 (the bumper # shows it as M4A3E8, but is actually is an M4A3E2). It appears that both the gunner's sight aperture and the coaxial MG port on the gun mantle have been welded over also.

Here's a sherman in Tomah, Wi. There were some 16" shells nearby but wasn't able to get pics of them. Next time.

Next to the sherman. There's a number of other items nearby. A pack 75mm a few minutes away, a Japanese field piece and an M-60 are in town and I know Waupaca has an M-60 and huey as well. Marshfield has a Cobra and Stevens Point has an old canon. I'll try to get pictures of some of this stuff later. It's surprising how much of this stuff you see around sometimes.
