Vimoutiers "Tiger" tank was on the 7th German Army at the Battle of Normandy, 21 August 1944. "Tiger" tank was rebuilt and a historic monument in 1975
Do you know how this tank met it's end? from looking at it closely it seems to have exploded from the inside?
Thank you, it's always good to know the story behind these old pieces of war machinery.
The article in the journal AFTER THE BATTLE #8 (1975) was written: "... the tank, was thrown from his crew due to lack of fuel but first put out of action (a grenade exploded inside the hull and turret )..."
beautiful and well-preserved piece of history, beautiful photos,very like,, nice evening
