    They were sent to Italy but IIRC the war ended before they flew operationally.

    same thing for the american T 26 Pershing tank. i heard they made it as fast as they could so it would be able to fight the last months of the war so the americans would know what this tank could do

    The Pershing did fight though.

    Unlike the Centurion, which was just too late.

    Hi corpcasselbury

    They were taken in San Francisco either on the 30th or 31st of August while on a rail/road trip with a couple of PEDG friends from Michigan. I plan on putting the rest of the photo's of these two ships on a web page/s on my domain or the PEDG one. Just need to find the time :cry:

    Regards
