One of only two surviving WW II King Tiger tanks is shown being
offloaded from a ship to go to the German Armor Division Training
School in Münsterlager, Germany for display as a museum piece (the
other is at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland). Note that the
tracks have been removed to "lighten" the 70-ton
tank. Photo dated September 11, 1960.
