Hi Guys,

While working on updating my GPS files to reflect the changes in US AFV register V4, I stumbled across this 'new to me' artillery piece and M48 in Macon, GA at 433 Shurling Drive, Macon, GA 31211. Michel had linked this locations' GPS coordinates with a different location, also in Macon (1030 Shurling Dr, Macon, GA 31211) and also on the same street, so I expected to see the vehicles we had actually photographed back in 2010 and was surprised to see NEW stuff at a different location! Yippee!

What is this German WWII Artillery Piece?

Take a look yourself at:
N 32 51.565 W083 37.042

Thanks!

Shouldn't that be at Fort Sill? What is a rare German Arty piece doing in front of a motorpool?
