    Bofors me up.

    T54, T54E1, T59, T60, T68

    Unsurprisingly, Aberdeen said no, finding it a fundamentally unsuitable carriage for 40mm pom-poms, but... What a glorious place to work that corner of Maryland must have sometimes been...
    'What about TWO Bofors mounted above one another?!'
    'Yeah, give it a whirl... but we don't like it... still, yeah, have a go... You never know.'

    I'm half a Marylander. My grandfather worked for a while at Edgewood Arsenal, right down the road from Aberdeen.

    I'm not sure what this is. I think it might be a T9 but I thought T9s never went into production. There are quite a few of them in "The Tanks are Coming"

    Great short. Lots original color (Technicolor) film of M2 mediums, Stuarts, White Scout Cars with skate-rail mounts, M2 halftracks and jeeps. Also lots of training footage of 37 mm crews.
