Yet another example of the heartless, cruel use of beautiful WW2 armored vehicles for target practice. A Crime Against Humanity in my book

Looks like it was shot up by a range of different weaponry, but if I had to guess I would say primarily US M9A1 Bazooka hits on the side. Did BGS use Bazookas?

The hull has seen quite a bit of action from the front as well. Those hits appear to be from cannons (tank or ATG).

Gents,

Thanks very much for your comments on the picture of the BGS troopers posing on the Jagdpanther. Some on the "Achtung Panzer!" thread thought that the pictured "JP" was now at the transportation museum in Sinsheim. This theory has been discounted however, as the damage on the pictured JP is very much different from the museum piece. Another member posted, "I wonder if they knew that their fathers were in that tank?"

The below two pictures arrived today. At first glance I thought the trio standing in front of the border fence were in the Afrika Korps. In any event, the troopers in both photos give me a wartime vibe. The Wehrmacht influence is very strong in my eyes.

"In den Harzer Bergen" is written on the back of the border photo. "Gepaeckmarsch" is written on the other.

Your thoughts?

Many thanks,
TJ

so you were the winner! Bid on both, but prices went a bit too high for me. Still won a few of the others instead haha

Nice view of the moleskin uniforms and what look like splinter covers worn with Manöverbänder. All this sellers photos are ca. mid 50s.
