Well, I do not like military stuff at all, but I want to inform you about some available items available in TT.

1. Sherman tank.
M4A2 and M4A3 Sherman available from Hauler:

U.S. Army and National Guard used Sherman tanks until 1955.
As I know, some Sherman tanks (modernized versions) were in service in Canada until early 1970s.
And, of course, you can use them for memorials and/or museums.

2. M101 howitzer.
The 105 mm M2A1 (M101A1) howitzer was in production in 1941-1953 and U.S.Army used it at least until 1970s (Vietnam War). The Canadian Forces continued to use the M2A1 as the C2 Howitzer until 1997, when a modification was made to extend its service life. As I know, U.S. Marine Corps uses them even today.

The model is available from TAM as ..."NVA 105 mm Feldhaubitze" :wtf: - in "NVA Modelle" section. I beleive it is a mistake - Bundeswehr used some of that guns, so it must be in "BW" section.
