Random mutterings, observations, and comments on what ever comes to mind. Photos will be posted.
When I was in the army (artillery) we had towed guns like these. The year after I was gone they became self propelled. But it was forbidden to call them tanks oh no. I now talk about 1966.
This is a U.S. produced M56 Scorpion tank destroyer produced from 1953 to 1959. It saw service in Vietnam, but was not popular with its troops. It was designed to be air mobile and could be parachuted into battle. It was later replaced by the Sheridan tank which had its own issues.
Similar to some of what we have in our War Museum.
A killing machine made for war.
