For the Record: Latrun Museum Pictures
Last part (I swear!) :) Part 1 is here, part 2 is here. Once again, thanks to Gabo from US server :) ZSU-57-2 These were bought by Egypt in the early 60′s from the USSR and used against Israel in the Six Day War and Yom Kippur War. They did not do very well and several were captured. T-62 T-55, T-54B, T-54C (Tiran 4) ISU-152 IS-3 These were used by Egypt. While their armor was quite thick (resisting the Patton and Centurion shells), the result of their use was a disaster due to improper use, poor maintenance, breakdowns and overheating. Several were captured by the Israelis, one was used as a tractor after the war. SD-100 This is a Czechoslovak-produced copy of the SU-100 with some improvements. The Czechoslovak army tried to get rid of it relatively soon and some were sold to Syria and Egypt, they took part in the Suez, Six Day and Yom Kippur wars. M47E1/E2 Patton This is a Spanish upgrade of the M47 Patton, made by the Talbot company. The M48 engine and transmission were implemented and so was the 105mm M68 (L7) gun and a fire control system. Over 400 were made and in case you are wondering, yes, this is a viable tier 10 EU tree Spanish branch candidate. Charioteer tank destroyer StuG III Ausf.G In case you are wondering, what the hell is a StuG doing in Middle East: after the war, Czechoslovakia was using captured StuG’s as regular tank destroyers due to the lack of vehicles for the army. After we got rid of them (early 50′s), they got sold in large numbers to Syria (another country to sell them to Syria was Spain). They were employed against Israel during the Six Day War, which was probably their last operational use. T-40/75 (Panzer IV) Apart from StuG’s, Czechoslovak army after the war was using Panzer IV’s as well due to the lack of Soviet tanks. They got renamed to T-40/75 and in early 50′s, they were sold to Syria, which used them until the Six Day War. Some were heavily kitbashed, like having an Ausf.D hull and Ausf.G turret.
