*****
Panzer: Panzerjäger Tiger, Ausf B Jagdtiger
A fine closeup shot of the mighty Jagdtiger. Of special note is the fahrgestell (chassis) number painted on the front armour plate and the narrow (66 cm) transportation tracks, fitted when Jagdtigers were moved by rail since the wider "combat" tracks (80 cm) made the vehicle too wide for railway flatcars. Unusual for a Jagdtiger is the application of Zimmerit anti-magnetic coating on the lover parts of the hull. The practise of applying Zimmerit was discontinued from September 1944 when Jagdtigers had already entered full scale production, so maybe this is an early prototype rushed into front line service in the last weeks of WWII.
