Here is the German gun David Doyle mentioned in the AFV forum last week.

Location is 35.007017, -89.976490

German Gun

I have no idea what it is and I defer to you experts.

Rear view

Notice the plaque, it's really nice but makes it a real PIA to get breech stampings.

Plaque

Breech and Block stampings
P1775
Breech stampings

If anyone needs better pictures I'll be back in the area in a week.

That's a relative term,

I'll give it a shot either way, since "Tichenor" wants me to check the SN location on the M7B2.

Jackson, Lexington, and Milan are pretty close, I can most likely get those on trips to Fort Campbell.

The others are around Nashville and further east where I don't go that much anymore.

Pittsburg, do you mean South Pittsburg by Chattanooga?
