This is literally a mile away from the house I'm in. Can't believe it's the first time I went in there with a camera, the coolest thing was the Swedish tank destroyer they just added to the game, the King Tiger and the 1390. Also the T69 was pretty sweet, actually it was all pretty awesome.

If the quality is bad I will repost any individually asked for pics

A lot of these used to be at Fort Knox at the Patton Museum, a short trip for me.  Certainly worth seeing, good job!

 

It is a shame that we do not have a big giant kick-butt tank museum to properly house and display all this stuff.

Why not upload an imgur album for the individual pics?

 

 

Also, the image right after the M3 Stuart seems to be corrupted.

Yes please, do post the pictures separately. Use Imgur I suppose.

Very cool thanks for sharing! I actually enjoyed the slideshow since I was viewing on mobile and lots of pics can bog it down.

There was a great one at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland.  I used to go there and the Air Force bone yard as a kid.  However, I think it is being or has been moved to FT Lee, Virginia.

Thanks  for sharing. If you ever get over Elizabethtown, Ky.  go to the Fort Knox Museum  aka George Patton Museum.

Awesome! thanks for sharing. I do wonder about the info cards with a marker used to scribble stuff in miles, and cross out old info. They even changed the Panzer IV from an F2 to G... Seems a bit unprofessional way to do things, haha. Tis about time Mericans come over to the light side and embrace kilometers anyway ;)

Necro I know but that is the plan. Len wants to restore most of these to as close to working order as possible and they are eventually going to open a museum.
