Default Schwere Panzer-Abteilung 505

Thought I should post a couple of pictures of this unit. Nice emblem on the turret.

Great photos. Interesting to see the tank ID number on the side of the barrel.

Preußens Gloria!

Thanks for showing!

The gap in the turrets zimmeritcoating makes me wonder. Never seen before.

Only to place the knight? Or original for the Balkenkreuz? Zimmerit was coatet in the fabric, or wasn't it!? So a place for the knight makes less sense, or!?

Best regards
