Back in the 60's, I worked at Aeronutronics on the Shillelagh. In one of the back rooms we had a turret from, supposedly, a T95. Does anyone know anything about it?
Inside my copy of Patton is a photocopy of a photo of what is described as T95 with Hydrolastic suspension and 152mm Shillelagh. It very definitely looks like hydrolastic suspension, but you have to trust that it is a T95. It's a head on view with a Shillelagh narrow turret. I do not know the source of the photo.As part of the development programme [of Shillelagh for the M60] three T95 turrets and two M60 turrets were requested for modification to carry the Shillelagh. The T95 turrets were to be installed on M48 chassis for test purposes.
