              12. Boss Hog

              Commissioner of Hazzard county. This guy was always up to no good. Robbery, counter-fitting, moonshine running, destroying crops. I'm amazed he evaded the US criminal justice system for so long, particularly when his nefarious antics were so well known to the people of Hazzard county. Corrupt just doesn't cut it.

                            No, he's right: the M60 is the Patton, the M48 is the Pershing.

                              Sorry Marc, the M-47 and the M-48 were both named Patton. The M-26 was the Pershing.

                              The photo that Vassilli used is of an M-48A3 tank of the USMC in Vietnam.

                              The M-60 was the first 'Main Battle Tank' or MBT.

                              Cheers,
                              Dan.

                                Well, I am by no means a tank expert, I just thought I remembered the Patton was the M48 and that the M60 was the Pershing. I will bow to the tank experts on here and be the first to say that they know much much more than me on the subject
