According to Crismon, this MBT-70 was tested at White Sands Missile Range. Later at APG. Seen in 1980 photo in Museum Ordnance magazine at the Ordnance Museum collection in very poor condition, lacking right-side track. Reported by same to be “behind the fence” as of 1991. Appears to have been relocated to the Military Museum of Southern New England. (Source: N. Baumgardner/AFVNDB).
This MBT-70 is in poor condition and is missing its tracks, left idler, and other parts.
