    91995 Photo's wow that is a lot.

    As the tiger is generally a point of interest with everyone I have stuck this thread so it will always be on the top of the page, and no one has an excuse not to be able to find a tiger photo.:)

    Some great photos there, sniper and tiger.

    I've been looking around that site, and I find it difficult to get specific war photos like the two links above. All I can get are the albums of users (like Bundesarchiv_06), or years (which stop working if left for a few hours).

    How do you find these bundles of specific photos, like Tiger repair and FW-189 air reconnaissance?

    P.S. What is the purpose of the small fins at the front of the propeller spinner in this picture?

    The answer below, taken from this link, Re: your propellor fin question.. Focke-Wulf Fw 189 Uhu - reconnaissance

    the vanes are part of the constant speed feature of the propeller. The fins are attached to the spinner and are free to spin, the spinner is attached to a small oil pump.
    The oil pressure adjusts propeller pitch, if the load on the propeller increases? ie during climb, the pressure falls, and the pitch is decreased (fine pitch). Hope this helps

    I found this picture which puzzles me a little.

    [​IMG]

    There seems to be a coffin at left and a priest at right, so it's presumably a funeral service. Yet the men seem to be laughing.

    I haven't managed to identify the aircraft in the background yet. It appears to have two adjacent machine gun positions at the rear of the cockpit, which is unusual (at least, to my scant knowledge of German aircraft).

    The pic had no title and the only keywords were "
    plane, battle, ww2, was, seldom".

    Thanks Ray for the fine Links! I like the Tiger tank and it is no problem to know that it wasn´t the best in WWII, but it shows the most power of all!


    Regards

    WW2 tank manufacture article was exactly what I've been looking for for a long time, if you know the same about Russian plant, so I would be very interested.
