Any known background?. That's a thing you don't see every day...

"A Jagdpanzer 38(t) followed by a Panzer II Ausf. F in Neuland (Niwnice) between 18 and 22 February 1945 during the offensive on Seifersdorf (Mściszów). These machines belong to the 8. Panzer-Division (XXVII. Armeekorps, Heeresgruppe Mitte)."

Amazing!, weird to see a Panzer II in that stage of the war that wasn't even converted to something else...

Thanks :)

There were 145 Panzer II (+ 534 Pz III) "in action" by March 1945. The real number was probably higher since many of the Panzer units didn't even bother to mention the surviving, obsolete vehicles (incl. Pz II) in monthly status reports by 1944. Still very useful as a recon/support/antipartisan vehicle, plus the planned conversions (eg. Pz III into StuGs) were constantly interfered by the Allied bombing.

That's not even a normal Panzer III, that's a Panzer III Beobachter tank- used for artillery observation.   It has a dummy cannon and the center position on the mantlet just as a spot for an MG34.
