Panzer 1V Floor Treadplate.

Postby The Devils Bank » Fri Jan 26, 2018 7:28 am

A very, very rare part of a Panzer..

This time it's the floor plate from a exploded Panzer 1V as "found" in the Kurland Kessel Pocket. :eek:

Totally destroyed as you can see, but, you can still clearly see, the distinct pattern of the treadmill plating.

Can you imagine the huge internal explosion that caused this horrifying damage x_x

Clearly, the ammunition inside the tank has exploded, blowing the tank to smithereens.

Nothing left of the Panzer crew.

The location of this Panzer was well known locally, parts had been blown over a wide area, but small parts could still be "found".

Parts like this piece, are all that's left of this mighty Panzer.

It's very rare to find them, still with the detail on them, helping to identify what part it is.

Scroll down to the MK. 1V, and it's page 4, picture #48. clearly showing the floor plate inside. :ymapplause:
