Abandoned Tiger I from s.Pz.Abt. (Fkl) 301. Soon after knocking out T26E3 “Fireball”, Tiger reserved into the rubble of house and became immobilized. Elsdorf, 26–27 February 1945.
Spoiler
According to the report dated 1 March '45, s.Pz.Abt. (Fkl) 301 had 15 x Tiger I in the inventory but only few remained combat-ready until the end of war.

German arms collected for the photographer on 23 June 1944 at Saint-Clair-sur-l'Elle, the command post for the 29th Div.
Those "German arms" contain American, Russian and French arms too ;)

Right. It's quite fascinating to find Soviet pieces being used in the West, from hand grenades to 7.62cm Pak 39(r) to 8.5/8.8cm FlaK M39(r), let alone various WWI-era weapons.





Somewhere in Northern France, Autumn 1944.
Spoiler
Trivia-bit: Wehrmacht still possessed 145 Pak 97/38 and FK 231(f) on 1 March 1945.

Streetcars of Breslau being turned into street barricades, February 1945. The cars were often tipped over to provide the best protection against the enemy fire.
