    Yes. Interesting. Experimental? Would make the main gun pretty useless in a tank on tank fight.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Very cool pic. That makes that one BadA$$ Sherman.
    It look like the turret is operational as the rocket launcher looks to be mounted behind the turret.
    It's hard to make out with the pic so dark. Is that correct?
    Or is that mounted to the turret?
    Hard to tell

    Those were anchored to the turret. Not much headspace above the turret hatch.

    Thank you Relicz,
    Great site!
    So the elevation was moved with the main gun barrel and traversed with the turret.
    The Calliope , Nice!!

    Mauser,

    If my memory serves me, I remember a model of this Sherman tank setup made by Revell or Monogram and the painted name on the side of the tank was, "Sreaming Mimi."

    I don’t remember that, I know both my dad and my neighbor, a 101st vet Bill, called the German Nebel Werfers “ screaming meamies “. They both said they maid a sound that struck fear in you and were pretty decistating to the area they hit.
