M4A3E2 Sherman "Jumbo" - Cobra King - 1st in Bastogne...

Sherman Jumbo named Cobra King is the company commander's tank of C Co., 37th Armored Battalion. This tank had become famous when it led the relief column into Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. The tank was later modified with a long 76mm gun, and it took part in Task Force Baum in this configuration, commanded by 1LT Willian Nutto. The tank was disabled near the Hammelburg camp, and was retained by the U.S. Army after the war and put on display at Rose Barracks in Vilseck, Germany. Researchers discovered that this tank was the famous Cobra King, and it was sent to the Patton Museum at Fort Knox, Kentycky, where it was restored to its condition during the Battle of the Bulge. The tank is now in storage at Fort Benning, Georgia.
