    Back then: They were built fast and furious.
    They wanted them on a ship, and headed for Europe as fast as they could,
    and no extra points were given for neatness.

    The Russians were even faster and more furious--
    Sometimes without even being painted.
    There was a time when some their tanks rolled out of the factory,
    and were in battle the same day- only a few miles from the production line.

    cool pics, Did you know the M4"A5" meant it was built in Canada. Couldn't find what the "EH" meant, could be different suspension, or different gun maybe.
    there is also one at my local VFW, should take a pic of it.

    Cool Nostalgia

    I've been reading thru some of the older posts. It's been over 20 years since I was on a tank, but still miss the firepower. We used HEAT rounds on the M-48s and Sabot and APFS on the M-60 as well as HEAT rounds to defeat armor. It was great to see the welds on the Shermans.

    I did basic training at Ft Knox, and have fond memories of seeing the sound and light show while on fire guard or CQ duty when they were doing night exercises.

    Also, watching them pull out onto the road and hammer the throttle is nothing short of impressive. Those machines jump considering how heavy they are.
