Very cool picture. I've always wondered how the average person who probably only ever saw a car before would react to seeing a huge beast such as a King Tiger roll by. Seems like they drew quite large crowds.

Continuing the "indecently shaped tank appendages" theme  ;D

The Tank Museum just did a very nice video on the Sentinel. Enjoy:

From my pov, it is a bad idea to have so many inflammable stuff around the gun ...

Given that there appears to be absolutely no cover at all there, I bet they'd rather risk the odd chance of setting that stuff on fire than stand out in the open like piñatas  :P

British troops including men of 1st London Irish Rifles clamber over captured German tanks at an exhibition of enemy equipment in Forli, 30 January 1945. The sign advertising the exhibition features the 'Two Types' cartoon characters made famous by the '8th Army News'. Vehicles on display include a Tiger I, Pzkpfw IV and Nashorn self-propelled gun. © IWM (NA 22001)

Damn I never realised how huge the Nashorn is, seeing it next to the Tiger and Panzer IV now.

British soldiers in liberated southern parts of the Netherlands (1944) dressing up as 'Zwarte Pieten' (Black Petes) to help the Dutch celebrate 'Sinterklaas'. It's a yearly Dutch tradition when a Santa Claus like figure (in the center of the UC with the mantle, staff and big hat) visits the Netherlands for about 3 weeks and gives presents to all the children.

Marder probably got hit by artillery as Matthew said. Note the blown up tree on the left side of the picture and explosion damage on the vehicle's right side (left for us). There's a big orange/black charred spot on the casemate and above the front hull/track you can see pieces of the armor that are torn up.

Marines driving their Sherman around with a captured Japaneze tankette on the back, apparently.

It must've been such a surrealistic experience for some regular German soldiers. Enlisting with pride to serve their fatherland and being hailed as heroes and mighty conquerors during the first years of the war, only to slowly start realising their leader is a madman that is leading the nation into its defeat and that they are actually serving an evil party that is exterminating people by the millions.

American DUKWs in the canals of Venice 1945

Nice pic! What's the story behind this? Did the unit that liberated Venice just happen to have DUKWs or was this some kind of R&R?

What do you mean ?
Is it because the logs in world of tank was badly coded ? or something like that ?

Nah, it's because every other Soviet tank has one and they look like spoilers. Especially because in WoT the Soviet tanks tend to have go-kart mobility for 'non bias' reasons. In War Thunder some logs actually have armor value (100 or 150mm) in the armor viewer, not sure if it's a bug or the devs are joking around.

First time I've ever seen a German tank with the legendary 'log' on the back that so many Soviet vehicles carried. The Stalinwood spoilers are a meme in World of Tanks  and War Thunder.

The fake visors were an attempt to draw away from the weakest part of the front of the vehicle from what I’ve read. Don’t know for sure tho

Visors are primary targets for infantry small arms fire, as it's their only way to disable (or make it less effective at least) a tank without AT weapons. I don't think there's much to be gained in tank combat as I don't think WWII gunnery was accurate enough to aim for visors anyway.
