Your problem is obvious
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 that's a railroad line in the background that could be a clue; maybe it was knocked off a train during transport, or flipped during some sort of unloading accident? It looks too intact to have been blown over by explosion.

On page 16 of "The King Tiger, Vol. II"by Wolfgang Schneider there are some shots of a King Tiger which has turned over during emergency unloading off of a train after it caught fire during a P-47 attack.

nice shot.

cheers

Bulldozed into the ditch...

The fact that there is a fence in the foreground and an American soldier posing with this Tiger II, I seriously suspect that there is a road and a steep bank behind the tank. To clear the roads of enemy armour for logistics reasons mainly, and to help keep up the moral of troops passing through, heavy bulldozers would often push enemy vehicles off the road and onto their backs.

Standing at the side of a French road in 1944. Tiger II '121' was either pushed or rolled when the verge collapsed. Recovered and shipped to Aberdeen. Later went to Munster.

An interesting thread to which Michael and others contributed elsewhere with nice pics on this vehicle with additional background:
