This six ton Sheridan from C Company,
3rd Battalion, 73rd Armor, was dropped by
parachute into Panama on 20 December
1989 during Operation JUST CAUSE.
The Sheridan replaced the Scorpion
in the late 1960s, but Panama was the
first time that U.S. Army armor was
parachuted into combat.

Mounting a 152mm main gun, the Sheridan
has been an important part of the 82nd
Airborne Division combat team. The Gun
is capable of firing conventional
rounds or the Shillelagh missile.
