TNI M3A1 Stuart tank

So the TNI inherited a lot of these at independence (the 1949 version, not the claimed 1945 start of the independence struggle) and used them until 1965 at least according to the plaque. There are at least four dotted around Bandung like Leopard Is at RSLs but I only photographed this one at the Museum Wangsit Siliwangi (the KODAM III/Siliwangi museum). Others are in front of active military installations which is not somewhere to be casually photographing.

Note it is painted in current TNI camouflage and not the original scheme it would have worn in service.
