I spent today with my grandson touring the US Army's Ordance Depot at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland. They have an extensive tank collection primarily from WWII but before and after as well, along with lots of artillery including Anzio Annie, the atomic cannon and a 16 inch shore defense gun originally made for the Lexington and South Dakota battlecruiser/ship designs which were cancelled. I went one other time a couple years ago in the winter and got a taste of what the panzers went thru in the winter of 41-42 in the Russian campaign. Today was much more pleasant and enjoyable.
They have Japanese tanks, Italian, Russian, US, British, German and French. My grandson and I looked high and low but we just couldn't find any Danish tanks. I took a great many pictures. A lot of these weapons were not used in the Pacific theatre, but I do admit to having an interest that extends beyond that boundary. If there is sufficient interest I could post them here for all to see and those who would complain that a JSIII or a JadgTiger have no place in this forum can just look only at the Type 95, the Stuart or the Shermans. Might take a while to do because I would probably have to resize them.
Let me know.....Next on the "to do" list is a tour of the New Jersey (toured the Missouri back in 69).
USMC: 1970-1977. A United States Marine.
