  • KwK 36. This Pershing was fighting a Tiger I tank when it was knocked out, and the very same Tiger it was fighting backed into a house or a pile of rubble during the panic to escape and was stuck and abandoned.
  • I'm sorry but can I have like a red circle or something? I cannot find the hole on the turret and I've been staring at this for almost 2 minutes now. I am sure it is plenty obvious, my brain has decided not to see it though
  • heres some more pics of the same tank that also show it. http://www.3ad.com/history/wwll/feature.pages/scans/pershing.ko.1.jpg
  • I bet there's an interesting story about the muzzle break
  • The middle branch crosses right over the center of the whole.
  • Isn't that a gun ?. Middle branch to the right of the main gun You're probably right though I can't think of why a gun would be up there
  • Nope, 88 hole.
  • Tiger that caused it ?, You know if any crew made it out
  • Two crewmen died, presumably the gunner and loader, as they sit on that side of the turret.
  • Loader is on the opposite side of the turret from the gunner.
  • I'm not so sure about that - the commander's cupola is on the left side, raised up with optics. IIRC the Panther had the same configuration, with gunner and loader cosied up on the right side of the turret, though the loader's position would be lower down for easier access to shells.
