LoL....they find damn near anything during raids these days. I remember a few years back, the cops did that firearms buyback thing in L.A. and a few RPG's turned up....

Medium tank. Used in Korea. Not much by the US after that.

True, but many were exported to the Third World, including Brazil...

M4 Sherman.

That was a question right?

OP's tank is definitely a M41.

Speaking of tanks, we were one of the last groups to see the Littlefield collection. Scroll down a bit in my thread.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=615907&page=9

Some pictures are messed up since I used Imageshack for some of them.

Glad we got to see the museum before they separated everything.

Something does not look right in that picture....

I see a air cooled VW engine on the floor, plus truck wheels around it, The tank looks like 1/2 scale in size. Sitting on what looks like a singe wheel axle
trailer. Plus the tank goes from the hitch to axle, A full size tank would dwarf all the stuff there...

I could be wrong ....
