Well, for those that didn't know, I've been outta the US for the last few weeks. Had one of my folks in a hospital and finally got them home late last week. Won't go into anything other than that for patient confidentiality.
So I had 2 weeks in Korea and had an opportunity on one day to go to the Korean War Museum. I've been to numerous museums in my lifetime but gotta say this is one of the best. Inexpensive, nice building, well maintained, and what I consider unprecedented access to many of the vehicles. Several had their hatches open and in every case you could walk right up to them and do the touch and feel. Granted there are many other museums with more spectacular weapons, such as Sinsheim in Germany, but many of these museums keep the exhibits at arm length and don't know of any that allow you to get inside some of the vehicles.
Here are just a few of the photos. Btw, I am planning on providing these to David Doyle for his use so please don't use these photos without permission in any books or other websites. I shot over 200 photos but can't put all of them on here so here are just a few.
Updated to id the vehicles
Kaytusha rocket truck. I think this is the 122mm version
The Korean version of our Abrams. I think it;'s called the K1. This specific display you could pay 500won (about 35 cents) and the turret went back and forth, the gun went up and down, the tracks went around, and it made engine and cannon/machine gun noises. The Rheinmetall engine pack is displayed behind the tank. Really need display. You can see the mounts under the tank that keep it in the air so the tracks spin.
Their version of our M35
Their version of our M211
M16 halftrack with the maxon mount removed
Jap 77mm mountain gun
