Default Rare picture of a VK4502(P)

Surfing the internet I have found this picture of a rare experimental tank. I saw that in World of Tanks only, until now.

That would be a cool build !

Looks to be a doctored pic.  you can tell at the turret/upper hull line.  The Jagdpanther II was along those lines as well but  with a fixed
fighting compartment.

That is a FAKE picture. The original picture is pretty unique though since it shows the Bergepanther mit aufgezetstem Panzer IV turm which was a one-off vehicle serving in Schwere Panzerjägerabteiling 653. They welded the turret of the Panzer IV on a Bergepanther chassis, so it could not turn. The vehicle served as a command vehicle.

Cheers,

John

Of course it was a fake (note the publishing date)

The original picture was very interesting, however, because the photoshopped vehicle is a Porsche Tiger

BTW I didn't know the Pz IV turret was welded: I tought it was fully operational. Thanks for infos.

Ha, ok, you knew it was fake. Hehehe. ;-) Just want to prevent fellow armor lovers getting trapped in these fake pictures. There's some more out there, with a Panther F, a Rammtiger, etc.

The SPzAbt 653 had a whole bunch of special vehicles. For instance they had T-34 with a Flak Vierling with armor shield. There's a great book on this Abteilung. If you are interested in German armor and some of these oddities I can strongly recommend you the book.

Many greetings from Belgium!

Ok, did, you know they have this unit in World of tanks the video game(rear turret type). Its Pretty cool, and nothing like a Panzer 2 tank detroyer without a fixed gun(plus much bigger)

A real monster.
It's nice to see how WoT gave so much impulse to scratchbuilding unusual and prototype tanks!

we seem to be having quite a "spurt" of paper panzers springing up now with quite a few what might have beens and ample imagination
