Tanks as Monuments / Displays

If you're ever on Oahu, this is an outstanding museum filled with weapons, medals & militaria. Not to be missed.
I may wander up to Schofield Barracks in a few weeks and shoot some of the Tanks on display up there.

I'd like to pic's of that.....
an M48 with the copula from an M60A2.
Any out there?
I've got a couple of the m48 hull/M60A2 turret lashup. I'll dig them out and post them ASAP.

He wrote a book called "He rode up front for Patton".
A very good person if I may say so.

If not, then they really messed up a good piece of history.

M-60 with camounflage scheme common in the 1970-80s. This tank was upgraded with the track that had seperate replaceable pads.
There are two M-47s in So. California, one in Barstow, Ca. in desert camouflage scheme that was applied to M48A5s and M-60s starting in the mid-1970s. The other example is at Los Alamitos Reserve Center, in front of the Headquarters 40th Infantry Div (MECH) CAARNG.
This is an M-60A3. You can tell by the flat sides on the turret. The "Slick 60" had a rounded similar to the M-48.

Say what? Do you have a few more details on this? Is this something our troops "rescued" and repainted? I can't for the life of me imagine the Iraqis going to the trouble.
Lord only knows what else is buried in the deserts over there. Reminds me of those WWI French tanks they found in a bone yard in Afghanistan, which I understand have now been shipped back to the West.
