The curator told me an interesting story about the Koings Tiger
Apparently it suffered gearbox failure, quite common for these I have read. It was then attacked by a Sherman and hit 3 times, I have taken pictures of the damage, the occupants kept on firing from the beast until they ran out of ammunition, they then came out of the tank and were captured by the French Resistance and lined up and shot
Cant confirm how true this is of course
If it's the Henschel turreted version with the SS markings, i wouldn't be surprised if the resistance shot the crew!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
The rangers did more than the point du hoc they were involded in many other battles.
Thats another place on the list to visit in the summer
