    hi all
    the first picture is a sexton artillery gun ,built in canada and based on the ram tank chassis, used by british and commonwealth forces and very similar to the american m7 priest.the sexton used the 25 pounder gun and was considered an excellent artillery piece ,and used by many countries after the war including portugal,there are many sexton restorations underway that originated from the portugese army there's also one for sale now with marcus glenn for a reasonable 25k for anyone that wants a "tank".
    the second picture i don't know but at a guess i would say it was based on the american stuart tank chassis and is probably a high speed tractor for artillery.

    hope you all enjoy easter holiday

    Hi, iv only seen a couple photos that some guy took there, he said that were about 30 of them, alongside with jeeps, trucks, old patton tanks, helicopters, St Margarida base is the biggest military depot in portugal.
