Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

More specific a M5A1 (AA gun moved to the right side, antenna bulge, 2nd turret periscope with rear view, and spotlight) with attached Cullin Hedgerow Device (those prongs in the front), used in Normandy 1944.

More specific yet (*this* vehicle): It is from 9th Armored Division, 89th Armored Reconnaissance Battalion (see the bit of the unit marks visible at its bottom right side, full assignation reads 9?89R) and its name was Fire Lady. US Army registration number 3049026

From Wikipedia:

Quote
The 9th Armored Division landed in Normandy late in September 1944, and first went into line, 23 October, on patrol duty in a quiet sector along the Luxembourg-German frontier. When the Germans launched their winter offensive, the 9th, with no real combat experience, suddenly found itself engaged in heavy fighting. The Division saw its severest action at St. Vith, Echternach, and Bastogne, its units fighting in widely separated areas.

To be honest I am not sure that F-12 should be there but that may help you investigate it further...
