Its amazing this convoy of Tigers hasn't
been attacked by RAF Typhoon fighter-bombers.
If caught on the road with no type of cover those, are dead Tigers.

If the photo wasn't taken during WWII, it would look like a peacetime FTX to me.
The Typhoon was a deadly combat aircraft
armed w/4x20mm cannons, 8xrockets, 2x500lb
(227kg) bombs, or 2x1000lb (454kg) bombs it could ruin a Panzertruppens day.

FTX: Field Technical Exercise

Tiger 205 commanded by Michael Wittman, good spacing between vehicles.
