    Captured Jagdtiger

    A captured jagdtiger on a Gotha 80 tonne trailer being prepared to be taken to England for inspection. Although the firepower of jagdtiger was lethal its mobility was restricted mainly due to fuel shortage and mechanical breakdowns. They were also very slow moving and a relatively easy target to allied fighter bombers.

    Panther in battlefield:

    On September 13th of 1943, seven Panthers from 1st Battalion of 2nd SS Panzer Regiment of 2nd SS Panzer Division "Das Reich", commanded by SS Hauptsturmfuehrer Holzer (turret number 101) fought with a group of some 70 Soviet T-34 tanks near Kolomak. During the 20 minutes long engagement Panthers destroyed some 28 T-34 tanks without any losses.

    During the battle around Siedlce on 28/29th July of 1944, 2nd Battalion of 5th SS Panzer Regiment of 5th SS Panzer Division "Wiking", destroyed some 107 Soviet tanks (including T-34s, Shermans and Valentines), while losing 6 tanks (one PzKpfw IV and five Panthers).

    This Jagdtiger was captured by the British in 1945. After the war was over the British military filmed this vehicle in action to study both the strong and weak points of its design.

    Knowing one of these was coming your way must have put the fear of god into the Allies, a very intimidating machine for sure. Thou a very powerful tank when on the attack its downfall was that it was to slow. Thou I dare say that the tank was used in a front line attack.
