Palestinian Armor

Still in 1982 with a magnificient picture coming from a photo album of French Marine veterans who served in Lebanon back in those days:

A derelict PLO M-50 Sherman found by French Marine troops in 1982 while exploring the ruins of Beirut Stadium. This tank is one of the two M-50 Shermans photographically certified to be used by the Palestinians to this date. Both Shermans have been discovered in Beirut Stadium, this one and another one in a worst shape.
