    Default What kind of tank is this?

    This is a picture from my home area, late November 1944, when the fightings had ended. It is told that this tank was turned upside down by the blast of an aircraft bomb. However it is not sure what kind of tank this is, my source alternates between a german Panzer IV and an american M4A3 with 76mm gun. Is anybody familiar with the bottom looks of these tanks?

    Not easy to tell, but the track does not look like American issue, On the opposite side where the track is missing, there are several road wheel support arms, (just noticed that) and Shermans never used that suspension system.also, And, the front of the hull is not that of a Sherman, so my thought is that its German.

    Well, judging by the muzzle brake, that is not an M4A3 -- or at least few if any during WWII had that style, TBMK. . Also, if the tank was flipped by an aircraft bomb...well, what state was the Luftwaffe in in Nov of 44? Unless it was a freak accident/blind luck, I'd say the pilot had to be trying to hit the tank, which suggests daylight. How many daylight sorties was the Luftwaffe flying at that time?

    I agree with Django, the tracks, torson bar setup & muzzle-brake give it away.

    Strange enough the book just offers the choice between Sherman and Panzer IV.

    The type and width of the tracks in comparison to the hull I would say a Tiger but I can't see the road wheels well enough to tell for sure. I would defiantly think it is a German tank from the tracks and muzzle break on the gun.

    Because of the tracks i think i would say tiger or panther or even a king tiger . But i would agree with Django . I most thing it is a panther . I would not say a panzer iv because the cannon is to long to be panzer iv . And about the sherman i would say no because the tracks are to big

    It could be a British tank since no one can really identifie the tank in the pic.
    It could be a maltilda tank,since they did not go so well in ww2!
    Uhm, because there weren't any Brits fighting in that part of Germany...
