    A nice size comparison photo , Tiger 1 , Panther ,Sturmgeschutz all from Narva , the Tiger 1 link is from 2 Kompanie schwere Panzer Abt 502 , the Kompanie of Tank Ace Otto Carius . Found in the Auwere area they were the only Tiger unit to operate on the Narva Front during the 9 months of fighting.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Do you have one? Be interesting to see the comparison!

    Just out of curiosity, did a T34 have wider tracks than say a Panther ? Itís well known one of the T34's advantages was its wide tracks and performed well in snow???

    The wide tracks were mostly for the mud. We have a LOT of mud here.....

    T 34 used 2 width tracks, 500/550mm Panther track was 660mm.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I read they were good in the snow in as well ? More surface area to spread the weight ? Far better than the German tanks? The Waffen SS even employed locals to clear paths through the snow for their armour I believe ???
