undated Atlantic Propaganda News Service photo

Likely taken during the winter of 1943 in Russia, this photo shows the commander of a German heavy tank destroyer, aka a self-propelled gun. Note the rabbit-ear-style range finder at his waist. Other tanks of his unit can be seen in the fog behind him.
