This tank belongs to the Connecticut National Guard and was for years displayed at the State Prison; it is on loan to the Museum of Southern New England (source: H. Otoupalik/Surviving 6ton Register). It was stored at the Guard base in Niantic, CT, and was on display painted olive drab during a National Guard open house (source: treadhead/AFVNDB). It was at the museum in 2002 but was not seen there in 2008 and may have been returned to its owner; it is, however, still featured on the museum’s website (as at August 2012).
