    Default piece of tank?

    This morning I found this thing in the wood, not far from where last year I found a sherman periscope. The area is near a road, so it could be a relic from battlefield as well as a modern garbage.
    It looks nicely corroded though.
    Any idea what is it? It's 22 cm tall

    It looks like a brake rotor from a more modern day vehicle but could also have been used on equipment .

    Hi Matt, I too feel it is most likely a disc brake.

    If it is, it will be post war, as these did not become widespread in use until the 1950's. WW2 military vehicles did not have these fitted.

    Disc brake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Cheers, Ade.
