U.S. 76mm T-124 Anti Tank (AT) Gun


This US 76mm T 124 Anti-Tank Gun is based on a tank main gun.  These types were fitted onto light weight carriages for airborne service in the Korean War.  The T-124 was produced in very limited numbers (under-100) but it seems many of this number still exist as monument guns.  The sight and sight mount for this piece are missing.
