This FT-17 has been fitted with a late-production American M1917 Light Tank turret. It is missing its 37mm gun. It was on display in the Patton Museum at Fort Knox for many years; in March 2009 it was swapped with another of the museum’s FT tanks (one recovered from Afghanistan) and was transferred to Carlyle Barracks (source: D. Moriarty).
