Darn it! You beat me to it! I even had the best line worked up for it too. ("Okay, so it isn't actually in a museum, but it is preserved...in a way.") Oh well.

This has to be one of the stranger situations I've seen a tug in. If International Harvester was still around, it would make for one heck of an advertisement. Interestingly, the former Navy tug at the Fargo Air Museum that was mentioned earlier in the thread also appears to be an International Harvester. Maybe the Navy had some sort of affinity for the type?

It looks like the guy with the aircraft carrier tug modeling page will have to update his list.

Whatever this is with Stallion 51


Look like a modified, drivable GPU unit. The rear portion doesn't appear to have structure enough to handle towing an aircraft nor do I see a pintle hook to attach a tow-bar.
