Tiger I

US soldiers pose on a Tiger 11 at Hunt's Gap, Tunisia. Tiger 11, together with six other Tigers, were destroyed its crew after becoming bogged down after heavy rain. This Tiger's turret was flipped upside-down by the explosion. The Tigers were part of 7. Kompanie/Panzer-Regiment 7 at the time, as part of Operation Ochsenkopf, though they were originally assigned to 1. Kompanie/501. schwere Panzer-Abteilung. After being delayed at the battle of Sidi N'sir, the Tigers were ambushed at Hunt's Gap on 28 February, where they fought for several days. During the battle, the commander, Oberleutnant Hartmann, was wounded. Of special interest is the deformation at the middle of the gun barrel, indicating overheating due to prolonged firing.
