Hey guys.  I just got back from visiting my brother in Basic training and i didnt realize they had a huge lot full of old WW2 and up tanks..  Aparently they are building a museum here and restoring all the tanks for show...  I managed to get pictures of many tanks.. American T28, t29, t30, t34, Shermans, M60's, M103's,  Soviet Su-100, T34-76, T34-85.. German Panther, Jagdtiger, sadly the Panzer 2 and 4, and the Tiger 1 that the United Kingdom sent back to the U.S (aparently it was on loan to the U.K) was in the buildings so i couldnt see them.

If the images are loading to slow for you guys let me know I'll put them back to links..


Here is the T29

Posted Image

The T29E3

Posted Image

The T34

Posted Image

T30

Posted Image

I believe this is an M47 it has the same type of wierd curved sloping armor in the front

Posted Image

Another M103 next to two others i think. or they would be patton tanks.

Posted Image

This an MBT70..  The Grandfather of the Leopord 2  as well as the M1 Abrams.  It was a Joint tank between Germany and the U.S with spaced armor

Posted Image

T28 Tank destroyer  Only one left in the world, M4 sherman in the background

Posted Image

Panther tank, there is a Jumbo Sherman Next to it that you cant see, suprisingly the Panther and Jumbo look equal in size as far as width and height go, the panther is slightly longer tho

Posted Image


Jagdtiger with a tarp over it, with the panther on the left

Posted Image

T34-85 on the left and T34-76 in the middle.  Looking at the russian SU-100 and T34's i noticed how poorly put together these tanks were, and how tiny they were too.  The panther is 2X its size..  so are the shermans

Posted Image

SU-100 or su-85 i believe

Posted Image




I will upload more pics with other tanks


Uknown tank.

Posted Image

Unknown tank..  Yes its purple..  Its gun is like 3 feet long.. and its turret is ugly as hell

The MBT 70 came after the Leopard 1, it led to the Leopard 2 and the Abrams.

Good pics though, would be nice if you could get the pics themselves and not the URLs, that is just me being picky though.

Two T28s were built, they were renamed the T95 GMC for about a year then we renamed again back to the T28. One was scrapped the other was suppose to be scrapped but was found in a forest.

The T95 = T28(historically speaking), with or without the second pair of tracks.

I AM SO JEALOUS

Also, here is the T28 with the second set of tracks added (which resembles the T95 in WoT.) NOTE: This is the EXACT SAME TANK as the OP saw.

edit: were you allowed to touch?

That is so cool

Anyone notice that the M103 turret in game looks alot bigger than it is supposed to be in real life?

Behind the panther tank I think i see an M41 walker bulldog

The T28 and T95 are the same thing. It resembles the T95 because the T28 IRL is the T95 IRL.

It is like a difference between a pancake and a flapjack.

Most of the vehicles in that lot were transferred from Aberdeen Proving Ground and the US Army Ordnance Museum located there.

Others were transferred from Fort Knox and the Patton Museum located there.

Nice Job, and out of the Red with one post ...

Optical illusion - a trick of the wide-angle camera lens and photo-angle.

Sadly no, i couldnt touch them.... i cried...  They were behind barbed wired gated fence..  It was open in one spot I would have gone in and taken pictures... but i was on my brother visitation day and if i got in trouble doing that he would get in trouble because hes on his family day.. even if he wasnt there...  So i didnt want to risk that.

Your right that Jagdtiger and Panther looked like the ones they had here in Maryland ( i never got to go to maryland before they moved the tanks)  But there is a Tiger 1 in those buildings.. Shipped from the U.K i didnt realize we had a tiger 1 on loan to them.. lol

I can't believe that one base has all those tanks.

Okay that is the most candid photo of a T28 I've ever seen. What is the stuff where the LFP is supposed to be? And it appears to not have been taken through a fence? Were you able to walk up to it or did you stick the lens through the fence? (Haha)

At any rate man this is really cool and I am saving that photo to my desktop :) T28 is my favorite tank.

edit: it appears to be rust/dirt?
