Here are some I could come up with quickly out of the KM collection - sorry for the poor quality of the photos. I will keep looking and see what I can come up with.

Hope it helps.

Gentlemen,
thank you again for the fine material provided. The Biber surrounded by a sort of tube structure appears in War Machine Enciclopaedia pulled by a german heavy halftrack.
One can assume this structure supported any kind of protective canvas.
Thank you a lot, best regads.
Eduardo.

Seems to be from Norway. The guy at the right is a Norwegian policeman.

I went back and found the original caption for this photo - seems it was in Norway.

"Molch mini-subs abandonded on the airfield at Forus, Norway, 1945."

Good call Stril! :wink:
