NACM Collection

Besides housing the Patton Museum of Cavalry and Armor collection, NACM also has received several vehicles from Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Fort Snelling, Anniston Army Depot and other posts. Some are rare and some are one-of-a-kind.


Stored inside the main motor pool building is this M8 armored car and two M3A1 Stuart light tanks behind it.


An M24 Chaffee next to an M7B2 Priest inside one of the pavilions constructed to protect the vehicles from the elements.


Panther II prototype. This vehicle never saw action and was captured by U.S. forces without a turret. The turret was added after the war.


T-34/76 built by the Stalingrad Tractor Factory in 1942. This T-34 was originally in the APG collection.


A Caiman MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) parked behind the motor pool building. This type of vehicle was used for convoy escort in Iraq. It was built by BAE Systems.


The T28 GMC with its outer track units sitting beside it. This vehilce was designed to break through the Germna Seigfried Line with its 105mm gun, but its development came to late to be of use. It is a one-of-a-kind vehicle.


SdKfz 10 light halftrack prime mover used by the Germans in World War II.


The turret of the Tiger I alongside its hull on the right. The Tiger I was originally from APG and then sent to Fort Benning after a long tour in Europe.


Another overhead view showing a German PzKpfw III F, and PzKpfw IV G behind it and a SdKfz 251D/9 halftrack among other vehicles stored in the main motor pool building.


The Tank Mark VIII, otherwise known as the Liberty tank, was a joint British/U.S. design that came too late to enter World War I. This vehicle is also from the APG collection.
