1. Anti-Tank Gun Marker
Inscription. This is a T-3 (T-78) Experimental anti-tank gun. It fired a 76mm round of ammunition. Being a towed weapon limited it to being used defensively, and its lack of mobility meant it could be easily outflanked. Towed anti-tank artillery disappeared from the U.S. Army’s inventory in 1952. This gun is one of only a few in existence.
