The Mississippi Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby is now exhibiting a type of tank which played an important role in the Korean War. A fully restored, M26 Pershing tank has been on display in the museum's vehicle park for only a short while. The M26 was used extensively in Korea and saw action briefly at the end of World War Two.
Currently, the vehicle park has 15 different types of US armored vehicles on display from World War Two to the present.
"We just put the M26 out about two weeks ago and we added another tank, the M103 a couple of months ago, so there's always something new to see at the museum, in particular, the vehicle park nowadays," said Chad Daniels, museum director.
The vehicle park also displays several types of helicopters and artillery pieces.
