a couple of new photos Zitatantwort auf diesen Beitrag erstellen Diesen Beitrag editieren/löschen Diesen Beitrag einem Moderator melden       IP Information Zum Anfang der Seite springen

I just scanned this photo from an old photo copy I had and found these other two pics that matched it.

This photo is from “Great Tank Battles WW II combat diary by Bradford. When I get back to the library that has this I will see if this tank has a visible turret number.
These other two shots are from the web and I can’t remember were exactly.
On the small color photo the tank behind the 1st standing guy on the right , it appears to be a small turret number low and forward 2?? .


Could these be belong to 502.
This photo here is one from a German book that I did not write down the title. the lead tank has a small black 2?? turret number and it may have a hull number 23? but I could just be reading too much into the scruffy whitewash.

The photo was captioned in the Leningrad area.

Last is this pic from the old Squadron Panzer colors and I know its captions are not the best. Is this a 502 tank or does it belong to another unit. I have tried matching in the gallery for all 3 but have struck out.

Hi Allen,

This is a new photo to me.


It matches a grab posted by Hartmut in the May43 Erganzung thread. The turret number does look to start with a #2, but hull numbers are a 3Kp feature which is a bit confusing


This pic is a grab from a sequence which crops up with the scene of Carius in his cupola, so I'm happy it's 502 too.

A close-up of one of the smokers from 'Critical Past' website


Did you notice the combination of side extension cutout's, rubber-tyred roadwheels, zimmerit, un-reinforced mantlet and (possibly) early tracks?


This photo is new to me too.


Finally, I'm happy that this one is 502 also. Don't have a match for it yet though...


Many thanks for your input,

Chris.

Hi again Allen,

The 2Kp Tiger being recovered in this gallery pic is a probable match to your winter photo

Zitat:




It's an odd Tiger. The cutouts at the hull front don't go with the other features. I suspect it went back for an overhaul, but the original build date was about October.

Hi Allen,
I was about to post the same!


Just went through Eric's post, looking at the other Tigers now.

Allen,

Panzer Colours was right on this one. Another photo of the same scene is in Trojca's 2nd volume and lets us identify it as a Befehlstiger. The missing flap matches to the gallery photo of 'I' in Russian hands.
