    looks like the same tank (damage matches) although its grew a new barrel. its a shame it hasnt been restored being such a rare tank, it would be nice to see 2 running tigers together

    That tank will never be restored, due of using as a target on the training field

    Definately the same tank look at the damage on the glacis plate and the turret. Never seen one that has completely lost it's barrel before !!!

    its a shame theres only a couple left and a few sections of others but i have seen worse than this put back together but its all about money and how much have you got to throw at it to get it back together i sence this one might cost well beyond what anyone is willing to spend on it
