M36 Gun Motor Carriage in Bitburg, February 1945
The crew of this US M36 90mm Gun Motor Carriage are rolling up a Swastika flag they have found in the German town of Bitburg. The town was captured in February 1945. The M36 was a more powerful version of the M10 GMC, with a 90mm gun but the same chassis and superstructure as the M10. The 90mm gun often carried a muzzle brake, but could also be used with a cover that protected the screw attachment.
