Vol. 1 No. 28 ……. Pictures of German and Jap Combat Vehicles ……. Cover: Tamed Tiger – This vicious – looking machine, photographed by YANK’s Sgt George Aarons during the Tunisian campaign, is a PzKW VI – Panzer Kampfwagen, which translates literally as armored battlewagon. More often it was called the Tiger, but here with the sleeve knocked off its 88-mm cannon and resting against the muzzle brake, it is definitely a tamed one.
