unfortunately, Chieftain has stated before that no T32's survived to the present day, but there are relatively lots of the T29 series lying around in various states of disrepair. AFAIK there is a T95/96 sitting in some display lot somewhere.

There is multiple t29's and T34's and T30's along with the T28/95 TD along with a slew of other tanks out on fort Benning ga. The Patton armor museum plus a bunch of other american museum tanks as well as tanka from all over the world are being shipped here to be overhauled and the new armored museum will be here. I have pica of some from when I was out there if you' d to see them

Fort Benning does have 2 T29 tanks, one with the range finder, one without. Also, the sole surviving T28/95 is there, but not on display. The T30, on the other hand is at Fort Knox. Both forts have more tanks but those are the ones mentioned and that I know about four sure.

The T28 isn't on display but it a sitting next to the fence. I actually went inside and talked to the owner and walked around. I got picks of the T28 up close as well as a tiger 2 and they had a tiger 1 pulled apart. Pretty neat seeing the stuff up close and seeing the scale.
Also the T30 and T34 are there as well now. They are sitting along the fence with their guns hanging over.

If they are of interest, I have around 500 of the T29 family I took at Knox several years back.  http://smg.photobuck...s?sort=3&page=1

I was going to say the same thing but got too busy blowing stuff up in-game to do so until now.

That would be great to see. As well as a video on IS3 or T10.
Although I don't know if there are any surviving IS7's.

There is an IS-7 right next to the IS-4 in the chieftans video. It's the only surviving one as the other caught fire and was destroyed.
And I'm sure they have an IS-3 there. There is an IS-3 out at fort Benning as well.

There were multiple IS-7s produced, far more than two.

Only three were built. Not sure where the third on ended up. As far as I know. I mean I'm not a super tank historian so I may be wrong. I know the first one had a 122 and that alao one was made into an spg variant.

Two of the model 1946 were built so the total is a least five.

I just looked and IS7 did not enter mass production and only 3 prototypes were built. The only survivor of the 3 is at Kubinka. As for IS3, there are many between IS3 and IS3M,  and I was not questioning that as they were mass produced, and the only IS3 in the US is a at Fort Benning, not including IS3M. There is an IS3M in California.

Sounds like we want the Chieftain out on the east coast and to travel back to Russia :smile: . I know how it feels to travel a lot as I will have made the 10+ hour journey to the southeastern US at least twice this year and the return trip is just as long, unless you fly, and I don't like having to make that kind of trip by car straight.

Model 1946 of the IS7? They only made yearly models of mass produced tanks.
Besides, what source is this from? I would like to compare a few sources and make another reply. :smile:

I think I may accidentally help re-hijack this thread by this question, but here it goes.
Could we see the M4A3 either E2 or E8? This is because I keep thinking of a local 4th of July parade that had an E8 in it and the nearby veterans hall that has an M4 outside of it.

I will have to try to search with those images when I get to my laptop to see what that is. Looks like a list member of the IS family or it raises the question, what were the Russians thinking.
Either way, my answer will arrive tomorrow.
