The M4A1(76) Sherman is one of those upgraded in the 1950s for the Mutual Defense Assistance Program :

On average space and light conditions are pretty good in Munster, leading to good opportunities for photographers. But the two wooden huts that host the self-propelled artillery and Jagdpanzers aren't that great instead, I had an hard time over there:

I expected somebody to ask about the MBT-70 behind the M48A2... I am disappointed Laughing

We had hoped it would follow the others!
Excellent photos..Thanks
The Museum is a great place.

And across the street is an equally good place to have something to eat (Curry Wurst & Pommes anyone?) afterwards.
Its been there as long as the Museum.

I had good expectations for the Museums, yet it proved to be even better than what I've expected.

an interesting study of the Tiger I in Munster :
http://www.mc-kettenschaden.com/museen/deutschland/panzermuseum-munster/index.html

it shows that the tank is made of early, mid-production and late parts.

Nice shots...as usual.

The cut-away display barrel next to it is presumably a 120mm smoothbore?
