Panzer IV's in Tunisia

I guess the Germans took demolition of Tigers very seriously at that time.

 

Does the above go with this?

I am fairly sure that is a pistol port.

 
Ah, I see...I see.  So what would that be dangling there, a closure plug for the hole?

 

 
Zat is correct, here's a better picture from another tank but ze principle is ze same.

The chain was to keep it from being stolen by guys from the other platoon.

I look at a lot of these, the Tunisian M48 (and Panther), various T62s and I cannot help but think, "What a long, long way from home that is."

 

And of course the same is to be said of the poor crews who perished in their vehicles.

This was a hard target I pressume? I have no knowledge of Tunisian armor lost in combat.

Looks like the shot hit short.  See it all the time, rounds hitting targets sideways.

Or one of those practice rds designed to tumble below a certain velocity?  Seems kinda short for a modern warshot.  S/F....Ken M

A good chunk of it is missing from that impact mark, that's why.

Looks like it is all there, and it looks like TPCSDS  (Target Practice Cone Stabilized Discarding Sabot).  Now it might be a Fin round, but most fin rounds are service rounds and almost nobody purposely fires expensive service rounds for tank gunnery.

That would match the damage that I thought was from a broken round too. I think the cone is for ballistic matching but with significant range reduction - there isn't much reason to use a cone other than to increase drag.

I have a finned penetrator I bought off evilBay several years ago and I always assumed it was from a training round. Is it?
