Deflector at the rear of an M7B2
- If have a question about the deflector off a M7B2, al the Priests I
have seen have a two piece deflector ( like the one my Dutch
colleagues are restoring http://www.priestm7b1.nl/ and
http://www.toadmanstankpictures.com/m7b58.jpg) only the one we are
restoring and this one (http://battletanks.com/images/M7B1_Priest-
2.jpg) has a one piece deflector. Can someone clear this out for me?
Some additional information about the serial numbers op a M7B2, we
found the number is stamped on the front, above the first bolt on the
right of the differential housing.
- I wouldn't be surprised to see the two-piece deflector on almost all
(or all) M7B2s, as these were postwar rebuilds that raised the howitzer
mount for incresaed elevation. Since these were reworked vehicles they
probably had late features added.
