Text in original Preserved Tanks In USA publication:


This early-production T-54A was made available at Fort Knox to combat units for training purposes, such as vehicle recognition, so it did not have a permanent storage location. It was on loan from llth Military Intelligence Battalion at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. It is missing its engine but it is hoped that an operational one will be fitted in the future. Also both the loader's and driver's machine-guns have been removed. It was moved by transporter from Fort Knox to Fort Benning on 5 November 2010.
