looks like a late model Sherman fitted with the FL10 turret and 105mm gun. Used by the Israelis

Added by Roger Greenaway on 11 August 2013.
This is an Egyptian conversion of the Sherman and is fitted with the complete Turret assembly from a French AMX13 light Tank. This was an Egyptian attempt to upgun the Sherman. This Israelis did a similar thing, but remounted the gun and added a counterweight to a Sherman Turret rather than use the full AMX equipment as the Egyptians did. Reference to these unusual vehicles can be found in the excellent Born in Battle book/magazine (Israels Armour in Action)published in 1978 by Eshel Dramit Ltd. Another hard to find publication (at least it is here in the UK!)
