    Thanks Blackwell. I've seen some of the pics but there were also some I'd never seen. A good find.
    I notice though that Panthers are always labelled as abandoned at Prokhorovka, but none fought there,

    I have discovered that in many collections and documentaries the labeling is often error prone but the pictures valid. That early batch of Panthers seems to have largely done itself in ! That T 34 with the turret sitting in front of it is compelling. I know lots of tanks have the turrets blow off from ammunition explosions but that turret looks really sound.

    Agreed, it looks in perfect condition. The whole battlefield must have looked incredible straight after the battle. There would have been thousands of wrecked machines of every kind to look at. A dream for any time traveller.
