Need clarification on that one though.

On your picture text? It's correct. Here the original from the source, SA-kuva.fi:

That´s obviously what the Marder IIIs in the background are for.
He got banned for our sins. He was not the member FH forums deserved, he was the member we needed.

Photo of a rare VK4501, German prototype Heavy Tank, also known as "Tiger (P)". While the tank had theoretical advances, it proved to be troublesome in practice. For example, the engine were prone to break and it required constant maintenance, it's mobility was poor and problematic drive system. Porsche lost the competition against Henschel, who got the order to build the new, yet unreliable Tiger I. However, the VK4501 became the basis of a new Heavy-Tank Destroyer, the Elefant/Ferdinand and for another heavy tank prototype, VK 4502.

One of these tanks, served as a Command Tank in Schwere Panzerjäger-Abteilung 653, during the battle of Kursk.
