[Book] Sturmtiger: The Combat History of Sturmmörser Kompanies 1000-1002…

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…

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…

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series Haustenbeck’s Heritage

A rare beast on any account, this particular Jagdtiger is unique in being the only surviving specimen featuring Porsche’s alternative suspension design. How did this vehicle make its way from a small town in Austria to Henschel’s proving ground in Senne to finally arrive at its final destination: the Bovington Tank Museum in the UK? In this part of the…

[Resource] D 655/27 Die Pantherfibel

Mar 29, 2021

Apart from the infamous Tigerfibel (D 656/27) for the Tiger, there was an equally richly illustrated for its younger cousin the Panther, called the Pantherfibel. These richly illustrated manuals taught the Panther-crews everything they should know about their respective tasks and their vehicle. Although parts of the Tigerfibel were in rhyme, especially the motto sections, the rhyme in the Pantherfibel…

Rüstungstagung in Hillersleben

Feb 12, 2021

In this article I’d like to discuss a relatively unknown armaments conference, held at the Hillersleben artillery range on June 6 and 7, 1943. This Rüstungstagung was presided by Reichsminister Albert Speer and attended by leaders from the armaments industry, high-ranking Nazi officials as well as senior officers.

In this second part of the “Haustenbeck’s Heritage” series, we will take a look at which vehicles were still present on the site after the war.

[Book] Der Panzerjäger “Ferdinand” by Michael Fröhlich

Nov 12, 2020

Continuing the story commenced in “Der andere Tiger”, in his latest work Michael Fröhlich tells us what became of the Tiger (P). The result is a companion volume devoted to the story of the Ferdinand tank destroyer: from design to assembly, and not to forget its combat use. Besides the Ferdinand (later Elefant), the Bergepanzer Tiger (P) is also briefly…
