The Littlefield Collection in California is known as one of the most comprehensive mobile artillery collections in the world, and now it can all be yours. Auctions America is putting over 100 vehicles under the hammer this summer, including some of the more interesting weapons of the past century. Here are some of the best they've got.

Israeli M50 Sherman Tank Awesomely, the Israelis are pretty much car guys at heart. Like they do with most of their weaponry, in the early 1950s they took an already legendary American M50 tank and suped the hell out of it. They swapped in a modern Cummins turbo diesel, and replaced the cannon with a state of the art unit that the French had just come up with. [More pics...]
Churchill Toad This was originally designed to clear minefields in the aftermath of WWII, by literally beating the mines with a bunch of chains spun at a really high speed with a 600 hp V12 Rolls Royce engine, which was separate from the 12 cylinder that drove the tank. It never saw battle, and this is the last of this particular model in existence. How this hasn’t made its way into more horror movies is a mystery. [More pics...]
Soviet SCUD-A Sure, by today's standards the SCUD missile is kinda primitive, since its targeting system requires little more than aiming and hoping for the best. Still, they pack a pretty significant punch, and were used by many a Soviet ally, including Saddam. [More pics...]
M37 105mm HMC If the M37 looks familiar to you, that's because it saw heavy service in both Korea and Hollywood, in films like Patton. It's essentially a heavily-armored rolling cannon that's powered by two different Cadillac V8s. [More pics...]
Radar 1S12/1RL1238 This is powered by a nearly 530 hp diesel, but of way more interest than how fast some cop will clock you as you're (probably illegally) driving down the street in this, is the size of its radar. That cop's radar is like an X-acto knife compared to the machete that this thing's packing. You can track planes at over 35,000 feet from over 100 miles away, which is every bit as good as the North Korean capability. Like, for real, because they still use this. [More pics...]
