    M50 Shermans
    M51 Shermans
    M3 Halftrack - looks like Israeli Command version (burnt out)
    BTR 152

    The M50 and M51 equipped the tank Battalions of the Mech Brigades (4th, 9th, 11th, 670th and 765th Mech Bdes) as well as two independent tank Battalions (181 and 182).

    This is certainly not the Egiptian front. It is the syrian front. It is clear from the landscape: the trees, grass, stones, and many other things can't be found on the eastern bank of Suez canal and are familliar with the Golan Heights landscape.
    The photographer was with the Israeli troops, so all the moving armours are Israel's and all the wrecks are Syrian.
