    Default T-28/T-95 now at Patton museum.

    I took a bike ride down to the patton Museum in Kentucky, and found the last and lonely T-28 on display there. This is one very massive machine, and in itself was worth the trip to see it. The pics do not convey the immenseness and gravity of the thing, but if it helps, the side skirt armor is 100 mm thick. Its locked up, so I could not get a look inside, But I do hope they restore this one, I'd love to see it run. enjoy the pics. - Raspenau -

    I'm working where they found it, in the middle of the woods at an abandoned Army range and engineer vehicle testing facility (in 1974)...

    It sure is, as we used to say in the Army, its a "pee bringer" . I'll be posting other exhibits in their proper areas soon.

    Default Sample armor plate.

    Here is another pic from the Patton Museum, showing the results of being struck by the 3 most common rounds in the M-60 series tank basic load.
    The Sabot, is the disgarding sabot anti-armor kinetic penetrator, carbide, velocity of about 5,000 fps.

    The Heat, a shaped charge anti armor round, lower velocity than the sabot, but since its chemical, speed isnt an issue.

    The Hep, (high explosive, plastic) is for general H.E. applications, and in some cases, is armor defeating, by crushing up against the armor, detonating, and causing a scab of steel to spall from the interior surface of the plate, causing damage, and injury.

    The Target plate was nearly 5 in. (125mm.) thick, so the HEP didnt cause any spalling in this case, and barely dented the impact side. perhaps a few mm. The Sabot, did its usual, fine job, singing merrily through the plate, and the Heat round did as well, with its pretty pattern of spatters.
    There was no info as to the range, or angle of the plate, the M-60 used a 105mm rifle. the Heat round is fin stabilized, and the other 2 (at that time,) were spin stabilized.

    The Museum is on the post, right at the edge, there is a separate parking area accessible from Hwy 31W, so you do not have to go on the post to get to it.(but you can if you need to. ) The museum is about 25-30 miles south of Louisville on 31W Dixie highway. If you wish to visit, call ahead to the motels for lodging, as during summer months the ROTC folks are in town, and use up most of the available rooms. The museum is free to enter, and has a nice gift shop if you fancy a momento. They have an stug there that was pulled out of a bog, in 1995, and looks pretty nice for being sunk all those years.

    The t-28 was designed for breaking fortified positions, particularily the Siegfried line. in that roll it would have done well if properly supported. There wasnt time get them into production, and deliver them to the field in time to do that job, so the project was cancelled. A couple hundred of these in an assault would be something to see.

    Pretty much it is, the Hesh has a metal mesh "bag" that holds the explosive, and controls the squash up to the target. The HEP is just a thin metal case, that peels I am told, like a banana upon impact. It has a very low velocity, around 2,800 fps, and high trajectory. the filling was 22 lbs of Comp. B
    The best use was against the turret sides, where the steel is thinnest, there it does a fair job of causing a scab to blow in, but that was on cast armor. Dont know if it would behave the same with rolled armor.

    Default soviet armor

    I have a pic of a T-72, with a T-34 in the background, the 72 was taken from Saddam, I remember the 72's being described as a real threat to the M-60's of those years. Not sure if it was true, but its all history now. sorry for the picture quality, not much flash available.

    Default Unrestored Japanese tank

    This is a vehicle in as found condition, washed out, perhaps, but no restoration done as yet. I do not remember which model it is, but its interesting to see it in its natural condition. The museum has one other, a different model, which is fully restored. - Raspenau -

    Hi.

    It´s a type 97 tankette Te-Ke.

    The color scheme doesn´t look original to me, but the japanese army only gave general orders for camo schemes. Many schemes were painted after the commanding officer´s preferences.

    Yours

    tom!
