The M1 TTB was an experiment for a tank with an unmanned turret from the early 1980s, using the 120mm before the adoption of the gun on the M1A1.
After many years of storage outside, the tank is now finally getting some much-needed protection, but there's not enough left to film a proper Inside the Hatch. In previous years, the Army had a policy of removing components from vehicles before putting them into a museum, and the TTB was no exception. Here's your glimpse inside.

Oh, and please don't berate the current collection staff for this. It is the result of decisions made decades before, the current staff are doing sterling work with what they have.

Thanks to the ACC and the Patreons for making the trip possible.
