The Loss of a TOS

Mar 1, 2022

After the start of the unjust invasion of Ukraine last Thursday, we have already seen large numbers of Russian armoured vehicles pouring into the country. Alarm was raised again last Saturday when a CNN crew captured the transport of a TOS-1A flamethrower south of Belgorod en route to Ukraine. This…

On January 14, 2020, Tiger II V2 was placed in the Nationaal Militar Museum, the Netherlands. The plan was for it to stay till September 2021. Due to the COVID-19 situation, plans changed, however, and the loan was extended several times, until January 2022. Tiger II V2 served as one…

[Book] Sturmtiger: The Combat History of Sturmmörser Kompanies 1000-1002 by Archer and Haasler

Jan 29, 2022

The Sturmtiger, although only produced and employed in small numbers, easily rivals the Tiger’s fame. This vehicle was used in three specially created units, Sturmmörser-Kompanien 1000, 1001 and 1002. In their new book “Sturmtiger: The Combat History of Sturmmörser Kompanies 1000-1002” Lee Archer and Timm Haasler aim to tell the story of these units. From the total of 18 Sturmtigers…

What’s in a name? From Tiger II to Königstiger

Nov 26, 2021

As is customary with German tanks, the successor to the Tiger I received many names. Initially, the new tank was named VK 45.03 (H), or Tiger III. Because the VK 45.02 (H), the original Tiger II, was cancelled, the Tiger III was later renamed back to Tiger II. In technical contexts, the same tank was usually referred to by yet…

On the motorway, I was pleasantly surprised by a convoy of Boxer AFVs. I could not have imagined that an even bigger surprise was waiting for me at the next lay-by. By chance, two low loaders of the Dutch army carrying specialized Leopard 2 variants were parked here. In this short post, we take a quick look at these vehicles…

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Tiger II V2

The size of my original article on Tiger II V2 got a little out of hand. To keep the length down, the section with a comprehensive background on Tiger II tracks is published here as a separate article for the tech-savvy readers. Being a test vehicle, it is not surprising that Tiger II V2 covered many test kilometres. The observations…
