Default Show us your KO'd/captured Allied armor

Let's see what photos of knocked out Allied armor you have in your collections. There has to be a a great variety of these types of photos in your collections. I"ll start this thread with a few I have in my collection.

Thanks Mike and Tim for the contributions to this thread. Mike, in post #4 (and #5) that is a Russian T-26. Tim, post #3 is a private photo taken by the same Soldat who took the previous two photos (#1 and 2).

Here is another photo of a couple Russian tanks.

Hi Todd.

I suppose this is not the war you're referring to, but it's an Allied tank .
Here's a British tank shot up by German artillery at the Massnieres channel during the battle of Cambrai.

Tim, the tank in #10 is a French Char B-1.

Thanks everyone for the contributions so far. There has to be others on the forum with photos to share. I will post more as soon as I get them scanned.
