Im wanting to post this to spread awareness about this huge tank collection in fort benning, and in the hopes of getting people to donate to the foundation which desperately needs funding to complete the restoration of all their armored vehicles and to build a museum to house these vehicles. This museum is about as unique as you can get without crossing the pond to the bovington tank museum. Tigers, panthers, t34's, and IS3, m103, numerous patton tanks, a jadgtiger, amx 13/75, centurions, and the home of the worlds only t95 doom turtle, and the autoloading t69! I hope i can post some video footage i captured while i was their on an exclusive tour, because these vehicles are a sight to behold.

Oh yea, and that sherman jumbo is the famous King Cobra!

Im hoping i can return to the restoration yard and take some more pictures, but these will have to do for the time being. Please help out the foundation by visiting their website, it would be a great help for not only them but for all the vehicles in their possetion, as it seems that tank museums are slowly dying here in america :(

Must have moved the tanks from the Patton Museum at Ft. Knox where armor training used to be.

Aberdeen Proving Grounds as well.  I went there in the late 80s.  What a collection at that time, to include a German rail gun.

The rail gun is in Fort Sill now, with a lot of the other artilley pieces which were at Aberdeen. The rest are in Ft Benning, Ft Lee, or Anniston Depot. Nothing remains in Aberdeen
