Argentine F9F Panther lay destroyed after being shot up by Argentine Shermans during the Azules vs Colorados infighting, 1962.

The Azules vs Colorados (Blues vs Reds) was a small scale armed conflict between slightly leaning Peronist Army and Air Force officers and generals and the anti-Peronist Navy officers. The Army and Air Force (Blue) officers wanted to include the Peronists in the resolution of social conflicts (Peronism was banned after Perón fled the country following the "Revolución Libertadora" in 1955). Meanwhile, the Navy (Red) was heavily anti-Peronist as they were the ones responsibles for the Bombing of Plaza de Mayo in June 1955, leaving 300 civilians dead, during the "first" government of Juan Domingo Perón.

The fighting was rather sporadic, with several skirmishes between the two forces. At the end, the Reds, the Navy, insurgents were defeated and they lost power after the 1963 National Elections.

I recall the Germans being very inconsistent on their kill reports. People often bring up the "Ferdinand had a 10:1 kill ratio" and I just laugh my ass off. No way that monument to human stupidity had that kill ratio.

Any more information on that one?. I'm curious. Very curious.

Willi Saeger was a German press photographer who followed the movements of scattered infantry, police and Volkstrum elements in the centre of Berlin, late April 1945. You can find more pictures from the same roll here:

and search for 30021094, 30020671, 30020665, 30016555


Holy shit!, I actually never seen photos from the German side during the Battle of Berlin, this is a great find. Shame it has the watermark, but great find nonetheless!.

I loved the title, "Against Zhukov Tanks". Volkssturm members marching to a near certain death against the Soviet Army in 1945. Look at every one of them, their faces reveal how much they want to face a modern army at their advanced age.

Can you help me identify these helmets?, I know the Finns have a solid variety of helmets, from German helmets to Italian ones, not to forget the French ones?
