Some of you may know I'm currently on a trip for business with the Army at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.

 

 

I managed to get some free time and found these gems... (These photos are a bit large, sorry)

 

Spoiler M67A1 Patton (Flame-Thrower)

 

M4A1 Sherman (Flame-Thrower)

 

This is the home of the U.S. Army Engineers, you can understand why the armament isn't full blown Armor Piercing.

What is the main gun on that Patton? Looks awefully short and weird.

It's an M7A1-6 Mechanized Flame Thrower.

 

I re-uploaded the information sign in the spoiler for it.

it's a flamethrower, hence the name M67 Zippo

+1 for the reference to the affectionate nickname.

Very cool. Flame throwing tanks are terrifying. Almost more than the boom versions.

Thanks. I was at the museum outdoor displays around oh, 530 PM Central.


I didn't want to inundate the thread with all the photos I took. I'll save them for when I return and post them on my channel.

Those flamethrower tanks are hot.

 

 

 

I'll see myself out now.

HA HA HA HA HA!

 

The Sherman confuses me. A tandem flame unit with a 76mm gun next to it. *cough* *cough* would be awesome to see, WG. :hiding:

Cool stuff, OP! These things are amazing to see up close.

 

I finally took some photos of an M41 Walker Bulldog in front of a museum here in my home town and posted them to the forum last weekend. It sure gives a greater appreciation of the might and substance of these war machines.

Very nice photos! Thanks for sharing and appreciation for your service, sir!

I'd LOVE to see them. I have a video on my channel of some tanks at Fort Knox including the Doom Turtle.

Feel free to post a couple if you're inclined in a spoiler below. :)
