    Cemetery Gun: The gun, which the museum dates to 1710, is mounted on a mechanism that allows it to spin freely.

    T26E1 heavy tank 'Super Pershing' with upgraded L73 90mm T15 gun, Europe, 1945. The 90-mm M3 gun of the Super Pershing was similar to the German 88 mm KwK 36 used on the Tiger I. In an effort to match the firepower of the Tiger II's more powerful 88 mm KwK43, the T15E1 90 mm gun was developed and mounted in a T26E1 in January 1945.
