Beat me to it. Engines were French Gnome-Rhone radials. Had some variants that flew in the East with a 7.5cm BK in a gondola under the fuselage. Worked poorly in practice i understand, but anybody so unfortunate as to be in a T-34 or whatever that took a 75 up the eister was in a world of hurt.Henschel Hs 129 Ground attack. "geflügelte Büchsenöffner" (winged can opener)
noticed it as a tiger also. also noticed the dudes tattooed arm, thought it was a more recent thing for service members to get tatted upI just realized that the picture with the guy putting the explosive under the tank is a Tiger. I assumed if was a Mark IV as that's what the rest were.
do you think the next pic in the series would be of said tiger in the process of beining blown to smithereens?When I figured that was a Tiger, it made sense of that series of photos. There are a few damaged Pzkw. IVs right near this unrecognizable chassis that's been blown up & is on fire in some of the shots, but there are no intact photos of the Mark VI. There are a number of shots of that chassis, though. Remember that the Western allies first encountered the Tiger I in Tunisia. That's where the specimens in the US & UK today came from. Looks like they were figuring out just how to blow up a Tiger here, and that the Life photographer may have been advised not to take photos of the tank before its demolition, or those photos were removed by the censors.
Yes, and the immediate aftermath of the explosion I have out of sequence here, #7 in the first post. The photo with the two GIs walking down the road to look at the burning wreck.do you think the next pic in the series would be of said tiger in the process of beining blown to smithereens?
