Atom Bomb vs Heavy Tank
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

(I don't know if this is an M26 or M46 but the soldiers appear to be Marines).
Operation TUMBLER-SNAPPER Men looking at tank for damage. Tank was still operational. This was 500
yards from ground zero at atomic tests, NV Proving Grounds, April 23, 1952.

Why do you say M46 for sure? The only sure fired ID points I know of between them are on the aft end (engine, drive train). What tells you this is an M46

My thoughts: IF the Marines had M46's by 1952 would they be blowing them up?

It's either a M46 or a M26A1.

No, the tool tray on the front glacis. No M26A1 or M26 had this. I built a M26A1 and really wanted to make the M46, but after learning ALL the modifications needed to make it I stayed with the M26 platform.

BTW, here's a good example of the M26A1 that I based my build from. svsm.org/gallery/M26

And an example of the M46. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M46_Patton

That one seems to be the Charlie though the dates don't perfectly match. Impressive vehicle that would suffer such minor damage against a 31 kt yield.
