Still, his collection looks entirely lethal. By the time he passed away in 2009, Littlefield had gathered almost 250 military vehicles, ranging from pretty big to really enormous.
Among the items available for purchase is this 42-ton American Sherman tank, a modified version of a smaller Sherman. Built with thicker armor and a heavier turret, it was intended for attacks against German fortifications late in World War II. More than 250 of these tanks were built, but only seven or eight are believed to survive today. It failed to sell at the auction because the sellers were holding out for an even higher price.
