One of my favourite early comic strips
(after I discovered them in the 1980's in a "serious" comics anthology)
the absurd world of The Upside Downs

Panzer Pzkpfw V "Panther", Ausf A
Serving in Russia with the Grossdeutschland Division, probably 1944. The paratroopers riding the panzer are typical of how this specialist breed of soldiers were used as plain infantry in the later half of WWII - some of them without ever having jumped with a parachute.Note how some of the troopers are wearing standard German Army marching boots instead of the special paratrooper jump boots.
