A shot from the depths of a Tiger
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

If it matters, 49 in May, but with 21 years of 'Tanking' the body is a bit worn out, but the mind is still sharp.

You know, 'Tanking' is a young mans affair, so I figured by retiring, I'll make way for the 'Next Generation'.

I instead, will endeavor to preserve 'Tanking' History from the past & present, for the future. (Kinda 'cheesie' but it explains the method to my madness.)

Regards
Don

The last point may be open for interpretation but I guess if you compare it to the other treadheads around here Mr. Green

Don, has your Tiger II got this lever on the wall to the driver's left?

If so, could you tell me how the cable connects to the lever? I've never seen the rear side of this thing.

I looked thru some of my photos but didn't take any of that lever.

Here is th best that I have. The lever can be seen on the left side. Not sure how it is attached or where it goes.

David,

Did the Tiger have a hull drain? That tube looks a lot like a pushrod tube, the way it curves down to the rear. That puts me in mind of a drain opener or something similar. The throw of the handle looks to be somewhat limited, which would fit with a drain or some sort of valve actuator.

No really an answer, but maybe speculating will lead someone to put the pieces together...

Chuck

You've got a point. Truthfully, I hadn't even thought about it, but it makes sense.

Thanks
