Craig Moore looks at some of the repairs and modifications undertaken on the Tiger tank during World War Two
When the open air US Army Aberdeen Proving Ground tank collection in Maryland was ordered to relocate, most tanks went to the US Army Armor and Cavalry Collection (AACC) situated inside the US Army base at Fort Benning, Georgia. It is not open to the public apart from a few ‘open house’ events each year. The collection only has two paid, overworked, members of staff – director Len Dyer and curator Rob Cogan. They have a small vehicle restoration budget and must choose carefully what work to undertake.
