That tank apparently blew up after being hit, which cause the superstructure to be ripped off, landing to the left of he vehicle (barely visible on the photo, and the turret to fly into the air, turning up-side-down mid-air, and landing back on the tanks hull.

Real life IS better than any Hollywood explosive stunt, by the way. Just imagine that amount of negative critisism for being 'unrealistic' a movie would get if it featured such a stunt on-screen!

I have seen a video showing a small german tank getting absolutley punished by heavy artillery 8O

Its like the tank is cardboard, each chassis side is blasted into the air...
it is a brutal sight to see.

The video series is called scorched earth: panzer battles.

We regard posting one or two images from a book, cd, website etc while giving proper credit to the source as acceptable use, but posting large amounts of images from books etc without first recieving permission from the author or publisher is not acceptable. The same of course applies to not giving proper credit.

R-2 hit by the Soviet antitank artillery. Karpovo (Odessa), 18 August 1941.

August 18. At dawn, the I and III army corps launch offensive, without artillery preparation. The 3rd Infantry Regiment of the 11th Infantry Division carries fierce fights to take Karpova railway station. At 6.30 AM the tank battalion of the 1st Armoured Division joins the battle. Entering enemy positions without infantry, they suffers heavy casualties, including the commander of the sub-unit, Major Spirescu.
