There are some unique features to this tank that are visible in a couple of photos. Based on this, what can we decipher about it?

Hi Folks!

Location: Ft. Bliss Museum.

Vehicle: M48A2 Patton Medium tank.

Ex-West German Army vehicle.

Allen, you should have posted a photo of the muzzle brake. That would have confuzed everyone.

Spot Report!
Sgt, Scouts out!

Right on the money, Roy!

Do you know anything more about this vehicle, ie, how it came to rest at Fort Bliss? Was the Bundeswehr training on it at Fort Bliss or White Sands at some point?

Thank you,

Allen

Ex Bundeswehhr M48A2 at Ft. Bliss

Hi Allen! Hi Folks!

It was one of about a dozen plus vehicles that was shipped in from Germany for the new 1st AD museum here. Some of the vehicles have markings for units of the 3rd AD which makes me think those were not at the old 1st AD museum in Germany. All the staff knows is they received what the Center Military History (CMH) ordered shipped here.

One of the guys in the local model club was able to use the registration number to find out which Panzer unit last used that vehicle before it was returned to the US Army.

I hang out at the Ft. Bliss Museum one day a week. I saw all the Air Defense items picked up and hauled off to Ft. Still, OK.
