Amazing! A PzIV turret at Berlin!
By the way, have you realized there are three different pictures of the same Berlin Panther Turm in this thread?

Two upper I knew for sure preciously-but by putting them together like you did-Yes that is one and the same turret! :D
Note that camo 'cloud' shape near additional armor plate attached to the left side.

I wonder if the bunker still exist in Berlin-I mean this underground part....

Thanks!

Verry nice site http://www.ullsteinbild.de/de_start.htm ,thanks for pointing it out.

I believe the panther turm shown below is the same one that was posted by javichu (the third one),there is also a trench in frond of it.

Cheers

Hello All!

I'm still thinking, if these 3 pictures posted by Javichu show this same turret...
1. On the last picture we can see the house in the background all in fire.
2. In Wohnenschau archive there is a film showing this same turret, while a house in the background, totally burned out, is being blown up (title of the film - something about rebuilding of Berlin)
3. So - when could be taken picture nr 1 and 2, showing untouched building in the background, neither burned out nor demolished, with american soldiers around?

Hello once again,

I have also another question about Pantherturm:
On the walls of the box under the turret you can very often see a triangle with a sort of inscription inside. Can anyone tell me, what was the text of the inscription?

Never seen a sharp photo of the text, but it starts with "Vorsicht!" followed by 4 words on 3 lines below...... :roll:

Guess that till now nobody knows that...
On pics of models there are blanks.
Mayby the meaning was: 'this side up'-or something like this-this steel box looks almost the same from all the sides.

For sure there weren't 'Rauchen verboten!' :lol:

I'm also sure about "Vorsicht!" in the beginning.

I guess it might be something about size of box from point of view of transport - the box might be sticking outside the railcar or truck. There are photos of upper parts placed on a railcar or a truck, and triangles always can be seen from the side.
The inscription may say something like this: "Attention! Size of load is above standard limits." Maybe some of you have seen similar triangles placed on a different types of german, off-size equipment? Probably text is very the same?
