M46 Patton Tank - In Korea, its 90 mm main gun was able to destroy the North Korean (Russian built) T-34/85 tanks and fire rounds against bunkers and fortifications. During the latter part of the war it was used for indirect fire support.
The M46 remained with troops in Korea well after the war because the armistice restricted new weapons being introduced to the theater.
