*****
Panzer: Panzerjäger V "Jagdpanther"
Abandoned in Germany, early spring 1945.
With a large penetration hole visible in the frontal armour, there's little doubt as to what put an end to this vehicle.
Note the second penetration in the left side track. Most likely this was the first shot, stopping the advancing Jagdpanther, with the Allied gunner finishing the panzer off with the number two shot straight through the armour plate.
The numbers and letters scribbled on the edge of the photo identifies it as the work of a US SIGNAL CORPS camera man.
