Description

Is it an M10? Out of the murky mists of the Ardennes forest prowls a tank marked with the star and in the green of the US army but something just isn’t quite right… It is the 5th December 1944 and SS-Obersturmbannführer (Lieutenant Colonel) Otto Skorzeny desperately tries to gather men and equipment for the offensive due to start just a few days later. Skorzeny was famous for his daring rescue of Mussolini and perhaps more so his special commando units employed in operation ‘Greif’ part of the ‘Wacht em Rhein’ counter offensive, later known as the ‘Battle of the Bulge’. Lacking real American equipment the resourceful German units turned to camouflage. By painting & welding on extra plates, they put together 5 panthers designed to have the general similarity to the American M10.
