Default Konigstiger at Militracks 2018

Have a look at the link below, post 5, on the War Relics site.

Superb! Thanks Gary for posting the link. The video was great.

I wish we could do a thread each year listing future events, for those who need a few months notice to attend such an event. I hear there is an event in Trier sometimes.

Wow other than WW II newsreels I've never seen a Konigstiger move in "real life".

Superb stuff Gary - thanks for pointing us to it.

Youre right, Trier is a must be. Not as big as Militracks but worth the visit.

Simply amazing!!! To hear it (albeit through YouTube), see it and watch that beast run was to imagine what it was like in it's days of glory! Thanks for sharing!!

Thanks for posting. Had to watch the video of the King Tiger twice.

That beast is heavier than my M1A1 Abrams I served on.

There was an annual tank show at Saumur itself, there the King was running. Was called le carussel or so. Dont know if its still happening.
