From the Vault: Edwin M. Wheelock and the Skeleton Tank

Today we present a four page article from the Jan-Feb 2002 issue of ARMOR on “Edwin M. Wheelock and the Skeleton Tank” by Major Dennis Gaare.  Readers with an interest in early tank development history may find this article worthwhile.  The Skeleton tank was an experimental prototype tank built in 1918 by the Pioneer Tractor Company of Winona Minnesota.  Only one prototype was built, and for many years it was housed at Aberdeen Proving Ground.
