Vehicle Collection Point
Posted: Sat Dec 21, 2002 6:11 pm
Hey Folks, this link hasn't been posted for a while, so I thought there might still be some people who would want to see a restored Panther and StuG out for their yearly jaunt in Germay. I also wanted to use this thread as a collection point for good vehicle links. Cheers, David

Ah, here's another golden oldie. Try this link for rare color photos of late-war StuGs. (Very late war, the landsers look grim enough to suppose that the Guards Tank Corps is less than a Km. away.) Cheers, David

Okay my last for the night. This guy's restoring a Hetzer, so he has to take it apart. Tip for this one: print it out now, I missed some great pictures of the gun and saukopft dismounted from the vehicle. One day they were on the site, the next day--Poof! Cheers, D

Just looking on the Jagdtiger web-site.
The sheer scale of the 'Maus' is incredible. Can anyone confirm that the Maus never fired its weapons in anger and if anyone does, then why wasnt this incredible weapon at least used to slow down the Red tide in 44-45.

I don't think the Maus was manufactured in any quantity, in fact someone has said that only a handful were ever made, and this was in the very late stages of the war. I also heard it had Soviet markings on it as well.
only one made...

One working Maus was completed and one hull(without turret). The 'complete' Maus was blown up and the Russians put the turret from this destroyed example on the other hull to make up the machine now on display in Kubinka. The completed Maus had a hammer and sicle painted on its side to 'disguise' it as a captured Russian tank. No known evidence to suggest that the Maus saw any combat.

I imagine most people have seen this site, but since I didn't see it mentioned, thought I would add it also. http://www.tiger-tank.com/

Later several bursts of machine-gun fire were made using ammunition taken from the same tanks.
We do know that mud has strong medicinal powers, but I believe the abouve statemente is far-fetched.

Herr Gauletier Guillermo, well, it's good to know that I wasn't the only one who viewed that line with skepticism. In my case, it wasn't because I believed or didn't believe that the ammo still worked, I simply wondered who would risk damaging a 50 year old recovered machinegun by finding out?
