Tank Museum

Josh and I took the opportunity to go to the American Armored Foundation tank museum in Danville on Run Day, which is when they have a couple of vehicles power up and drive around the display area. (One was an APC and the other was a self propelled gun, not true tanks, but we got the idea). Not as many WW2 tanks as I had hoped for, but they had a number of interesting things. Items of note:

  • PzKpfw IV
  • tiny Dingo II scout car
  • slightly larger Ferret scout car
  • M1917 Six Ton Special light tank
  • Honest John missile, presumably without the 20kt nuclear warhead
  • Mk 41 15cm Nebelwerfer (it werfs nebels!)
They also had a variety of uniforms, unit badges, posters, paintings, and other memorabilia.
