Interesting photos from the Vietnam War , taken by photographers of the North Vietnamese Army and  the Viet Cong

*****
Panzer: Pzkpfw V "Panther", Ausf G
A late production Panther, most likely photographed in spring or summer 1945. The Panther has been dug into the ground with a tow cable dragged over the hull, suggesting the vehicle had mechanical problems and was used as a static defence weapon. Note how the turret numbers have been painted onto the spare tracks on the turret. The tracks were originally hung from metal supports for quick removal and emergency repairs, but some crews had them welded permanently to the turret to serve as extra protection against anti tank weapons.
