M1 ABRAMS

The arrival of the M1 Abrams in Australia

22-09-2006

A Phone call from my son Scott, conveyed the message that there was a low loader with a "flat looking tank" on it travelling on the Ring Road heading towards the Hume Highway. My immediate thought was--Abrams! So I grabbed a camera and shot down to Wallan and sat in a truck stop waiting, and in about 15 minutes it turned up

And past they go at a fair speed 

The arrival at Puckapunyal

And this is where you are stopped--Armoured School Tank Hangers

Ready to unload

And off she comes

Ready to unload the Hercules M88--ARV
