Photo of the Day: Cold War Size Comparision

We stole this photo from the forum.  It shows a US M60A1 tank showing off it’s considerable height advantage (disadvantage?) against a Soviet T-54/55.





  1. the bigger m60 allows for higher gun elevation and depression for fighting in hilly terrain (western europe). a short t-54-55 means a lower profile and smaller target to hit on flat open terrain (russia)
