    Default King tiger in Denmark

    HI. i have a book with an very interesting picture in it, namely an King tiger used for clearing minefields at the westcoast of Denmark. The title of the book is Atlantvolden ved Ringkøbing. Does anybody know if there for sure has been an king tiger in denmark or what happend with it, the picture shows a lot of english soldiers at the Tiger. The book was published in 1983.

    It looks identical to the one I saw in Sinsheim. I have a still photo of it but no scanner at pres.

    When I can I will scan it and send it to you.

    Its an amazing museum if ever you are in south of Germany you must visit

    * A Sturmtiger is on display at the Kubinka Tank Museum in Russia. This vehicle is believed to have been captured by advancing Red Army units in the Elbe area in April 1945.

    Sturmhunter, this site may help you with an answer to how many sturmtigers are still out there. The site seems to be very good at listing all surviving WW2 and WW1 tanks. Surviving Panzers
