Photo of the Day: T28 Accident

These photos were reportedly posted on the facebook page WRECKED N RECOVERED TANKS AND BATTLEFIELD RELICS earlier today.  The photo shows the T28 prototype heavy tank after it fell off a transporter this weekend.  Apparently, the brakes on the HETT which was moving the T28 suffered a failure, resulting in the tank coming loose.  Fortunately, no one was hurt although the tank reportedly suffered some damage to a few bogies.  The tank was being transported to a restoration center, so whatever damage was incurred in this incident will be repaired as part of the restoration of the vehicle.  To see images of the vehicle loaded on the HETT, check out this facebook post from the National Armor and Cavalry Museum.
