    Ok guys, lets see some pictures of panzers in action!

    Note: Only live action photos are allowed!

    I'll start;

    These two excellent photos show PzKpfw.V Panther's spearheading to clean a road (Picture taken from inside another Panther through the commanders target observation scope):

    source please ?

    funny, the foto came from a copy of the W-SS 5th Wiking

    Verweht sind die Spuren, the II. Abteilung smashing Soviet T-34's on page 170 with the twon of Lublinez buring in the background. copyright date = 1979 Munin Verlag. It's obvious I own a copy right after it was first published .........

    Source = my harddrive ;)

    I have a folder purely stacked with combat footage and photos, and those two pictures have been there for a loong loong time, three computer lifetimes infact, passed on from one generation of harddisk to the next ;)

    well my young friend they are from the source I quoted along the lines of the II. Abteilung archiv's

    your second set of pics is also well known belonging to the II.Abteilung working with one of it's sister Pz Grendadier units in pre-Normandie. Note the non-helmeted stab offiziers in the command halftrack. Soren I was interested greatly in the Waffen SS in the early 1960's before I jumped headlong into the LW

    next........ ?

    Soren, Erich means you need to source where you got the pictures from.

    I know Adler, but that will be a problem since they're from the harddrive.

    I have thousands of pictures in books I could show as-well, but I have no scanner. So unless the pictures are in the books I have I can't reference them. Sorry.

    I don't have the two books Erich just mentioned, but the first two pictures are stunning so it might be worth the while to check them out.

    I dont think it will be problem to post non-german tanks. if it is, let me know soren.

    Great photos BTW, but sourcing them is helpful

    I will start with the italians. Source is from a little book i have had for years, WWII Tanks Orbis Publishing 1978. The original source for these photos is listed in the credits simply as Zennaro Rome (aphotographer i assume)

    First Photo is of a L3 Flamethrower tank demosntrating it abilities in this role

    2nd 3rd photos are of M-13/40s during Rommels final drive into Egypt, June 1942

    last Photo are Semovente in action during Alamein

    Source is Hungary


    First image is a csaba armoured car, circa 1943, location unknown

    Photo II is the tutan I Tank produced i think from 1943, based on a czech design

    Photo II is the turan II. Not sure when or where, but looks russia autumn '42 or spring 43

    Next photo is a tank called a Turan II. Not sure of where it was taken, but its late war, and only a few were made. hungary by this time was mostly reliant on german material

    Next photo is a mainstay of the hungarian armoured forces, the StugIII Is this a standard model of the Stug ???.

    Lastly the Zrinyii assault, a home groown assault gun i know virtually nothing about. it looks like a fairly effective piece of equipment to me with similarities to late war italian Semovente.....
