Default Inside a Tiger

A few photos inside a Tiger that has seen better days. Interesting though.

this look like the Tiger at Vimoutiers in France, Normandy . If so when I first saw this in 1974 it was still where it fell, down a slope outside the village. Since then it has been pulled up and a purpose built park for it. Nice to see it mobile one day.

I was climbing on that Tiger last May!!!
Glad they saved it from the farmers that were cutting it up for scrap!

I recall that there were some very serious cuts made in the vehicle before somebody intervened in the process.

I have some other photos where you can see the damage (inside) from the explosives in the top plate and a piece was welded on.
