Lots of photos of captured Axis equipment in Gorky Park.

http://forum.panzer-archiv.de/viewtopic ... sc&start=0

There are some photos of Tiger I initial "100" that I haven't seen before. Hopefully they will be of use to someone.

Very nice pics, Tim, thanks!
I can¡t identify the halftrack with armoured cab in the first pic, behind the B IV; it's a ...Sd.Kfz. 7 with....flak 38...or flak 43?

You're welcome Darío.

I think it is a Flak 43 as the shield above the gun breech is much taller.

Does anyone know which Ausf these Panzer IV's are either side of Tiger 100? I think they are F2 or Initial G.

OK, so, it's a 7/2, thanks
The Pz IV looks like an early G to me too, but I can't be sure 100% sure

To be able to answer one should know the tank serial number. Was it built before or after the name changed ?
Rule of thumb : if no ball shaped muzzle brake then you're safe (more or less) to call it a G.
Plus they seem to have the extra tracl links brackets on the glacis so Gs likely.
Cheers.
Laurent.

My current projects :
- StuG III G "late" (90%)
- StuG III g "Early" (99%)
- Pz IV H. (98%)
- Befehlspanther G "R01" (95%)
- Sherman M4A1 "Early" (99%)

Thanks Darío & Laurent.

Dragon's 6594 Pz IV Ausf.G looks a good match. Would need to remove the additional armour and turret storage though.

Are they repainted? Or just gray?

That appears to be a FlaK 43 but what is odd is that it is sitting very high. It almost looks as if it is sitting on a platform or something. I don't think it is normally that high up. Also note what is to the left (our left, the Sd.Kfz. 7s right) of that vehicle. A 8.8cm PaK 43 Waffentrager. Interesting. That dates this picture at the end of the war.
