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
