Rode in a Sherman Tank

Recommended Posts

I had a chance to ride one in 1972.

 

The Belgian military museum in Brussels had a working one.

 

They were reconstructing their displays and were moving the tank.

 

I was invited inside for the ride.

What an amazing experience, thanks for sharing! I would love to that myself someday and throw in an M3 Halftrack for good measure.  : )

No problem, I’m glad you enjoyed them!

 

This was the first time their M3 had been ran in year. They said all it took was a new battery and she fired right up. I don’t think many vehicles would have been able to do that!

That flamethrower is real.

It is, and even from a distance you could feel the heat. It really made you appreciate the service of the guys who used them.

How cool is that? Riding in something as iconic as a Sherman is a treat. It’s one of those events that you don’t forget.
