Panzer - The successor to the Tiger was the even mightier "Königstiger" (King Tiger) a formidable weapon both armament and amour wise but greatly handicapped by it's weight (68 tonnes, fully loaded) This is clearly visible in the photo taken in Czechoslovakia a few months after the war ended, the abandoned King tiger is slowly sinking into the ground simply by the force of its own weight.
The connoisseur would notice the object on the rear deck in the shape of a cylinder, this is a housing for an extra radio antenna making this King tiger one of the very rare command vehicles used by battalion commanders.

Babe - Looking at these two Troublesome Trollops I imagine hearing the soundtrack from Pulp Fiction.
