M56 Tank Destroyer Defends Freedom

It is often said that the strongest prevail. Evidence of the concept locally in 42N country is hardware of the Vietnam War era. The US Army's M56 tank destroyer was built to accompany airborne troops in the battlefield. As a self-propelled artillery canon the Scorpion (M56's nickname) provided a platform to essentially shoot up tanks. A photographic close-up of the tail Star speaks of the years of service and the layers of graffiti in retirement. Know that.
