Cool photos Jacob. What's that sitting on the T55 chassis in the second row of pictures?

Assuming we're looking at the same thing, it's a ZSU-57-2.

And it's not on a T-55 chassis. If you note, it has 4 road wheels and not the 5 of the T-55.

The ZSU-57-2 hull design is based on the T-54 hull design, but not made from T-54 hulls. It's armour was thinner, the weight greatly reduced leading to the need for only 4 road wheels per side. In short, it's completely new.

Ah, good call Paul. I just saw the last road wheel and thought T55. Didn't even notice the missing wheel, thanks.

Glad you all liked the Pictures. These Guys, the former Jugoslavs, didn't throw anything away. I've seen old German WWII stuff like the Le. 18 10,5 cm. field gun, MG 34, MG 42, P 38 and MP 40, all with the Nazi stamps on them. We also found an old Russian PPsh 41. The only real Down side to all this was that we had to destroy all these goodies
