A fine day, with a stiff breeze, glorious sunshine and a choppy sea in the background, providing a lovely backdrop to this T-55 tank crushing a small car. We were lucky enough to catch this happening at the Muckleburgh Collection, a museum of military vehicles, uniforms and memorabilia on the North Norfolk coast near Sheringham. Check out the website at http://www.muckleburgh.co.uk/ and drive safely;)
Muckleburgh Military Collection Tank Display. 23/06/2012.
This is the Muckleburgh Military Museum http://www.muckleburgh.co.uk/ on
the beautiful North Norfolk coast. Featuring M10 tank destroyer, Soviet
T55 100mm MBT, Swiss Panzer 105mm PZ61, Soviet 85mm T34/85 and 2 British FV
433 Abbot 105mm SPGs. Unfortunately the M10 stopped with a clutch problem,
but was still able to provide some noisy anti tank cover.

The 16 cylinders of this US Army Light Tank make an impressive sound at the
Muckleburgh Military Museum on the North Norfolk coast and despite being
warned about the loud gunfire, it still caught me by surprise. The M-24
Light Tank, was produced from 1944 and has a 75mm M6 gun. Powered by 2 x
110hp Cadillac V8 petrol engines coupled to a Hydromatic gearbox. 4415 were
produced before the war ended.
Chieftain tank crushing car
Chieftain tank crushing a vauxhall astra back in 2004 at a drive day in
West Tofts, Norfolk, UK.
When introduced to the British Army in 1966 it was the most powerful main
gun and heaviest armour of any tank in the world.
