All1knew:

I deleted your attachments because of their graphic nature. This haven't been a problem in this section, but the holocaust section have had a policy not to openly display the attached images.

Rather, you should link to them, with an explicit warning of their nature. They are already available on the Internet (from my website), so there's no need to attach the images to the forum anyway.

The link is
Warning, very graphic contents

At least this one went to a good home :)

(p.s. there was another thread here, I believe, about captured panthers, I couldn't find it so this photo ended up here instead :( )

The size gets somewhat exagerated, baceuse of the tilt of the Tiger II.

For a hight comparison with the Sherman:

Hmmm...

Thanks for that Christian :) but the pic makes the height difference closer than what it would seem...I have stood next to a sherman though and I was surprised by how high they were! 8O

M4 Sherman = 2.74 meters

Pzkfw VI Ausf.B = 3.09m

That depends on which Sherman:
M4A1(76)W Sherman: 2.97
M4A3(75)W Sherman: 2.94
M4A3E2 Sherman: 2.95
(There are others too)

On a related note:
M3 Lee: 3.12
M36: 3.28

I know this is off the subject (you may delete my post if it is to off kitler), but I dying to know 2 things.

1. Are those US GIs
2. The GI closest to the tank, what weapon do you think he is carrying?

Regards,

Chris

I should add the reason I'm asking is that it doesn't look like an American weapon. My guess it's captured, if that is an American GI of course.

Regards,

Chris

I have to mention again that this site is excellent and extremely informative. Thanks all for the great posts and research.
