not from that spot it doesn't.  That's a spill on the outside.  Any leak from the gearbox leaks into the tank or out the sprockets

 
 
hm, yeah looking at photos of the whole assemby dismounted.

it can only run into the inside. It is a bit like a tub that the gear box sits in. So what is that oil? running from the machine gun? A can of oil in one of the storage boxes leaked?
 
 

 

 

Directly in line with the stain there is a 5 gallon can on the front slope.  I don't know what it contained in 1945, but in 1985, among other liquids, we were putting oil in them.

@Sherman

 

My first thought was, there's oil spilled (in the sense no leakage). Bucket fell over and a residue drained out or something. Tanks are often "fat and oil sluts" after a short time.

That's gotta be the thickest side armour on any tank turret ever made.

As a child of the cold war, it is interesting to say the least to see such a pairing.

You could always see strange pairings in Yugoslavia. F-84G, F-86D and MiG-21F-13 based on same airbase, M36 and T-55 in same units etc.
