This is the breech on the Tiger II. Cool



Spent sometime today in the Tiger II ( Mr. Green ), uploading about 40 dummy rounds into the right side ammo racks. Never remembered enjoying ammo upload partys like this one. A truely unique experience.

The 'bite' marks?

Don't know, perhaps it happened during restoration back in the early 90's?

Thought the SN data might interest someone.

Almost looks like it hit something during recoil. Maybe got pushed out of battery when moved. Not hard to do if you "Spike" the tube.

Here are a couple that I'm sure will get me ridiculed (even more??) Rolling Eyes

For those 'in the know',....uploading ammo can be considered quite a workout. I'm a bit winded, but hey,....I retired 3 years ago. Cool


Wink
Enjoy

Reminds me of up loading Bee-Hive in the hull when I was in Korea.

90 plus degrees outside and humidity is almost 98%. That and those damn hull doors that just don't want to line up or open easily.

You know what I'm talking about, don't you Dontos.

HA HA HA.....OH YEAH. Loved the idea of the Bee-Hive, but hated the monthly ammo inventory.

PT IN THE MOTOR POOL!!!

Gotta be the T II,

Unless they sneaked the T1 back without anyone noticing.
