I'm wondering if any one can verify these are authentic, i found them on an Italian web site. They look real enough to me, but the apartments in the back look a little more modern. Anyway if they are athentic then this is one of the best color shots of a Panzer IV camo I've come across to date

Totally authentic I would say.

Buildings are typical 30s. Very modernistic. Got a few blocks like that in London. They look like Italian Futurist designs.

The ones I have seen are not as elaborate in stylistic detail.

Hey all, this is the Italian web site i stumbled across, it has some pretty amazing color images chronicling the war in Italy, many pictures of German, Italian troops and vehicles, as well as allied all in full color. Any ways enjoy :)

The color Panzer IVs are from Panzer Lehr, probably while they were in Hungary. I saw them first about one year ago here:

German troops (with Panzer IV G) in Caucasus Mountains. Looks nice and serene. I don't know if it's already posted in this thread or not...

I think this one might be a coloured B&W photo.

Sam, They are Lehr but they must be post Normandy as they carry the stylised coat of arms of Major Prince Wilhelm von Schönburg-Waldenburg (I hope I spelled that correctly) adopted as a battalion insignia after he was killed in Normandy.
