As well as the heavy tanks, featured previously, the Muckleburgh Collection has an assortment of lighter armoured vehicles, and scout cars. They also have some artillery pieces, alongside tracked self-propelled guns, sometimes mistaken for tanks. The first photo above is of a British Saladin armoured car. It was in production from 1958-1972.
An American M-8 Greyhound armoured car. This was used extensively during WW2
A British Saracen armoured personnel carrier. This could carry nine soldiers, and was used all around the world, until comparatively recently.
Russian lightly armoured open personnel carrier. This saw long-term use, including combat in Afghanistan.
A fast Scout Car, used for reconnaissance.
A US Army Alligator self-propelled gun. This was a tracked landing vehicle, used to support amphibious assaults.
The famous German 88 MM FLAK Gun. Designed for anti-aircraft use, when adapted to field combat, it proved to be devastating to both Russian and Allied tanks.
An American ‘Long Tom’ artillery weapon. This fired a 155 MM shell very long distances, up to fifteen miles away. It was used during WW2 and also during the Korean and Vietnam wars.
I hope that you enjoyed the second part in this series. The final post will feature rockets, light vehicles, and an aircraft too.
