The Germans used obsolete tanks, like the M-13 or the Czech T-38 for internal security and anti-partisan work. A tank like this might be useless at the front, but against a partisan group or an urban uprising where the enemy were armed, at best, with small arms and maybe a few Molotov cocktails, it was an effective weapon.

KOed Panther G

Post by Panzer Fest » 14 Apr 2004 01:18

Some really good quality pics of a KOed Panther G(l) I stumbled upon.
I think the page is in czech and couldn't find a czech to english translator, so if anyone could tell me what the caption says that would be appreciated.

There are a couple pics of KIA at the bottom of the page but they are not from the tank.

Why would it have been done by a Tiger - there's a much creater chance that it'd be a Pz.Kpfw. IV or Panther, or an anti-tank gun.

Don't forget it could have been one of the ubiquitous German "88"s from a Tiger, Panzer I, ATG, artillery, mortar, MG..... To some anything that fell from the sky that originated on the German side was an "88". Maybe it's just a pet peeve of mine, but hearing accounts from documentarys, movies, and reading combat accounts, and even some veterans one might think the only caliber gun in the German Army was 88. Grrrr!

Does anyone know what kind of round hit the stug in that last pic? This info could help me in a debate elsewhere. Thanks.
