And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
First time I was in Egypt, I had to take a taxi from Cairo down to the Gulf of Suez, to catch a boat in Ras Ghareb. We were on the way to Suez in the desert and all of a sudden BOOM! The Egyptian Army was on maneuvers, and they had rolled tanks up on the dunes next to the road for target practice. They were firing over our head. Scared the livin' crap out of me, even rattled the taxi driver, which is no mean feat in Cairo.ReplyDelete
That's a Russian tank in Ukraine.
Just ask ABC news.
Bwahahahah, you got me laughing Ghost. Innerwebz of the day again.Delete
I think its M51 modified ShermanReplyDelete
Rear of the turret doesn't look right, too squared off. From the angle it doesn't look quite right for the French LT 10 turret either. But there were a lot of Sherman variants after the war.Delete
I agree. It almost looks like a WW-2 German PanzerDelete
amx10 turret on a sherman.ReplyDelete
Casualty of the Six-Day War or the Yom Kippur War?ReplyDelete
Nope. The turret is from a French AMX-13 tank with a 105mm gun. Choice of 90mm or 105mm and this is the 105mm.ReplyDelete
Israeli soldier asks a girl out on a date. She says, "but our country is at war with Egypt?" He says, "Ok, how about tomorrow?"ReplyDelete

This is a "M4 Sherman FL-10" - actually is one that was later refurbished to be used as a display. https://i.imgur.com/JvOW6IW.jpgReplyDelete

These 51 tanks have a very interesting history.
