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.

The Battle of Mohács was one of the most consequential battles in Central European history. It was fought on 29 August 1526 near Mohács, Kingdom of Hungary, between the forces of the Kingdom of Hungary, led by Louis II, and those of the Ottoman Empire, led by Suleiman the Magnificent. The Ottoman victory led to the partition of Hungary for several centuries between the Ottoman Empire, the Habsburg Monarchy, and the Principality of Transylvania. Further, the death of Louis II as he fled the battle marked the end of the Jagiellonian dynasty in Hungary and Bohemia, whose dynastic claims passed to the House of Habsburg. The Battle of Mohács marked the end of the Middle Ages in Hungary. [Painting uncredited / Caption from Wikipedia] #history #medieval #war #hungary #middleages #ottoman #turks
