According to DE state news, Ft. Miles got a M2 90mm AA gun today. I'll go there this weekend to photograph it. Rick

The M2 90mm AA Gun is at Biden Center, Cape Henlopen Park, DE. I checked out the Artillery Park at Ft. Miles, it wasn't there. Found it behind the Biden Center, guarded by 4 whitetail deer. Not an artillery expert, but I think it was nicknamed "Skysweeper", and think APG had one years ago. If You want to look at photos:

That's an M2 90mm.

The Skysweeper was an automatic 75mm gun, the M51. It was the first AAA weapon with the computer and radar on the mount.

APG had both in the museum yard.
