 Seth_Soldier - That's a nice textbook example of Škoda camo, with false visors painted on.

No stock?
And when you click it bigger, the muzzle looks like something out of a vacuum cleaner. Whatever the idea is behind that design :P

Functioned basically as a muzzle brake, minimizing muzzle flash and powder gas. You could also deploy it through the narrow view ports of the Mannerheim Line bunkers.

I need to get that book. Thank you!

EDIT: Except I cant, because just like Lärka's book, it has been sold out and they arent making reprints.

Have you contacted Parola? It's pretty exclusive release, but they still had around 120/500 remaining when I got my copy few months ago. Lärkä's book can be occasional found from online antiquariate (or huuto.net), for example: https://www.antikvaari.fi/naytatuote.asp?id=1401920. That's actually pretty good price, considering they usually go for €60-70.

Extremely good picture of the ISU, never seen that one before.

From Erkki Käkelä's "Panssaridivisioona 1942-1944" (2017). This book has few never-seen-before photographs, even though most of the pictorial content is from SA-kuva (like always).

Finnish ISU-152, disabled by two Soviet T-34-85 on 29.6.1944 in Portinhoikka. ISU was the leading 'tank' on the side of Börje Brotell 's "Bubi", during the Finnish counter attack.

Munitionspanzer III from schwere Panzer-Abteilung 505. This type of vehicle would be nice to see in the game - especially in some late-ish maps (Studienka, Cobra, Totalize). Frail supply trucks remain behind the ABC-line, anyway.

schwere Panzerjäger-Abteilung 653 platoon leader's Ferdinand (Fgst.Nr. 150080) returning to the combat trains after an operation. The vehicle commander is Leutnant Hermann Lock and the gunner is Unteroffizier Kurt Titus. This vehicle survived Kursk, with very minimal repairs needed.

Plus 7 operational and 1 in repair with "Ersatz- und Ausbildungs-Regiment Hermann Göring" in the Netherlands. These were later deployed against the British, but few of them broke down during the road march before reaching the battle.

Sounds like every German tank, ever

I wouldn't be that harsh  :) These were training vehicles, with a considerable amount of wear and tear from being used almost weekly for more than two years. Actually, it was a Pz III Ausf M, 2 x Pz IV (w. 7.5 cm KwK 37), StuG III Ausf E and two Marder III (w. 7.62 cm Pak 36) that made it all way from Utrecht to Hechtel.
