Soldiers of the 1st Polish Army with the POWs from the SS "Charlemagne" Division in the area of Pomeranian Wall, 1945. Note the pretty much entire uniform of german origin on the soldier with MP40, rogatywka beign the only thing indicating him being part of a Polish Army.

"Bubi's" loader, Armourman Armas Launikko on 7th of July 1944. Hmm, I wonder if we are getting Vuosalmi map as well, considering the existence of "logged" and "non-logged" Sturmis...  :o





Jagdpanzer 38(t) completed by BMM in autumn 1944, upgraded with the late type Kugellafette V and road wheels with narrower rubber rims. The vehicle was seized by the US Army in the Czech Republic during the spring of 1945.

Albert Speer, Ferdinand Porsche and Porsche Tiger (Fahrgestellnummer 150 007) in the background. Nibelungenwerk, 27 August 1942

Spoiler
"Speer was skeptical whether the Porsche design would really be suitable for series production, despite all the efforts that had been made to prove it. The running and climbing tests in the gravel pit dramatically confirmed Speer's concerns. Even when negotiating the banks of the gravel pit, the Panzer IV was clearly superior to the Porsche Tiger. Those trials were an unqualified embarrassment for the tank designer Ferdinand Porsche". 

It wasn't until November '42, when Porsche's Tiger project was finally terminated in the favor of Henschel's design - Tiger that was initially ignored by Hitler personally, granting extra time for his favorite engineer and delaying the mass production for several months (the same was repeated later with Jagdtiger's suspension system).

Ah Porsche, they went from making tanks to fulfill Hitler's dream of genocide to winning several Le Mans endurance races.

History never found a suitable ending for these companies, like Bayer, still in business despite their obvious role in the IG Farben.

The guy left is a certain american politician. The guy at the right is some weird rocket scientist, but his face looks very familiar.
