Phunn are these: A Callen parody
*****
Panzer: Sdkfz 251/1, Ausf C
In winterly attire, both vehicle and crew member.
Note that the trooper's reversible winter uniform is composed form the early (1942) version mouse grey jacket, and a pair of the later version trousers in German Army splinter camouflage.
This was not uncommon, since the winter uniforms were not part of the soldiers personal kit, like the greatcoat and the rain poncho, but were distributed in autumn and returned to the depot again after spring. The name painted on the hull of the 251, Heinz Graf, was probable a former crew member killed in action and awarded the Iron Cross.

Some psychedelic art of Heinz Edelmann (the artist behind The Beatles' Yellow Submarine)

This art was done for a childrens' book in the seventies! a good thing times have changed... children should be taught to be a productive part of the workforce, not loose themselves in silly daydreaming about going to Mars!

*****
Panzer: Pzkpfw IV, Ausf H
Just another day in the life of an armoured unit on the Eastern front. The covered main gun and MG 34 suggests this photo was taken behind the front lines.

Yes, I DO like the impressive craftmanship and imagination of Sci-Fi concept artists from Asia, like Lin Chuan Shin, who is Malaysian.

Panzer Panzerkampfwagen III Ausf H(U) – Tauchfahig
Tauchpanzers, or U-Panzer, were equipped with water proofing gaskets and schnorkel devises, enabling them to drive under water up to 15 meters deep. Originally designed for the planned (and abandoned) invasion of Britain, they were used for crossing rivers during the invasion of Soviet Russia in 1941.
