Sherman Tank turret trainer 3-T-2

Post by tmca05 » Tue Sep 04, 2018 2:27 pm

I am being offered a Tank Turret Trainer for what I believe is for a Sherman tank.

Does anybody know anything about these? I can find nothing in books or on the internet about this type of trainer. I do find more complete or more modern tank turret trainers but nothing like this one.

It has a data tag that says:

National Guard of the United States
Trainer, Tank Turret
Familiarization and Communications.

Device Number
3-T-2

Developed and Procured By
Office of Navel Research Special Devices Center
U.S.N. Contract No. NONR 866 00

I think you are right, it does look like an M26 Pershing. Thanks
