M36 B1  ;)
specifically in the Polish tank museum.

Quote
White stars painted on hull sides. Unit markings painted on transmission cover. “USA 1923” daubed on sides of hull and turret, and “WOSIM USA” daubed on sides of hull, when recovered. Painted overall in a sand and green camouflage scheme when recovered. 

This tank destroyer was recovered from Iraq, and is believed to have previously been captured by Iraq from Iranian forces. It is mounted on a low, flat concrete plinth next to a line of flag poles. It appears to be fitted with a non-standard gun and muzzle brake, indicating it was probably up-gunned by its original owners.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

thats where the B1 part comes from  ;)

Quote
The need for 90 mm gunned tank destroyers was so urgent that, during October–December 1944, 187 conversions of standard Medium Tank M4A3 hulls were produced by Grand Blanc Arsenal. These vehicles, designated M36B1, were rushed to the European Theater of Operations and used in combat alongside standard M36s.
