Panzer - A Tiger II being examined by American GI's somewhere in western Germany in 1945.

Many allied soldiers had their picture taken in front of a Tiger II, the sheer size of this 68 ton vehicle must have been very intimidating to the young recruit landing in Europe. Posing with your best pal in front of a destroyed one was a nice message to send home: "look mom, I'm alive, can you believe it!"

Babe - Get in gear.
