Jim, There is one at Ft. Sill, OK. I found 2 photos of it via a web search. There's also the T92 Howitzer Motor Carriage self propelled version of it, mounted on a slightly enlarged (1 extra roadwheel) T26E3 Medium Tank. Not sure if any of the HMC's survive? Rick

There are some surviving operational 240mm M1 Black Dragon howitzers still emplaced on islands off Taiwan. Here's a YouTube video of one of them live firing - www.youtube.com/watch?...ElP_uwSww.

Regards,

Charlie

The US Army Yuma Proving Ground has one on the corner of US-95 & Imperial Dam Rd, next to the Atomic Cannon.
