This Patton arrived at the museum in May 1969. According to the museum’s website it is an early model, a T48, however the presence of a T-shaped muzzle brake, a large driver’s hatch and track tension idlers indicate that it is not one of the earliest pilots. It is fitted with a T139 gun (number 147) manufactured by Watervliet arsenal in 1952.
