    Default Tiger found in mud-Korsun/Cherkasy

    I was trawling the net and think this might be a new find for you all to appreciate. No real pics as yet, but the $200,000 price tag must mean it is a fairly intact piece I would think.

    Just found this, while looking for more info on this Tiger, "In January 1944, one of the Leibstandarte's s.SS-Panzer-Abt 101 Tiger commanders, Michael Wittman, was awarded the Oakleaves to the Knight's Cross for his actions in halting the attack of an entire Soviet armoured brigade. The division was transferred to the Cherkassy area at the end of January, where it was assigned to III.Panzer-Korps, a part of 1.Panzer-Armee."
