Cool!!! You can tell its not a real tiger by the way the wheels are! The tigers overlap each other!

That tank used to be in our unit (9th hohenstaufen). Until the motor blew up, the current owner replaced the motor.

Where did you see get a ride at?

Kelly's Heroes was filmed in Yugoslavia. A big reason for that was the large amount of available running WW II armor. The fake Tigers were customized T34's.

Anybody notice how CLEAN the uniforms were, almost a crease in the pants, the boots are real scuffed, sorta funny fighting your way behind enemy lines, just taking out a town, a laundry trailer must be BII for advance, point units, just in case you have to negotiate with a tank co.

I vaguely remember the German halftracks being painted M3s in KH also. Once had someone at a car show try to tell me that my M3A1 was German because he saw it in a movie. Whatever.

Certainly like the Tiger. Love T34s.
