More Shots From Aberdeen

Today we will get back to looking at photos from our recent trip to the U.S. Army Ordnance Museum in Aberdeen, Maryland. In the workshop/warehouse that we were allowed to see there was a British Crusader Mark III tank and an Italian Semovente Assault Gun. The Crusader Mark III can be identified by the large muzzle brake. The Mark III had a 57mm gun (called 6 pounder by the Brits) whereas its two predecessors had 37mm guns (2 pounder). Both of these vehicles were very common sights during the epic struggle between the British 8th Army and the German Afrika Korps during World War II. Both of them had very recently been restored and they look like they just rolled off the assembly line!
