Tiger 142 of Heavy Panzer Battalion 501 in front of the Grand Theatre in Tunis on around the 27th November 1942.
This was one of the first Tigers to arrive in North Africa, and it appears it was sent into Tunis for propaganda purposes. This official German photograph was the first image of the new tank seen in Britain. It is fitted with the narrower transport tracks.
Other photos of this tank show that the 88mm gun did have a muzzle brake fitted. It was edited out of this photograph by the German censor.
