Tiger S-33 and Tiger S-13 following behind.
Das Reich Division, 1943. Checkout the hits from anti-tank fire to the front.

note heavy damage to the lower right of the gun mantlet. The insignia is the disguised 'Das Reich' marking applied specifically for the kursk offensive. The commander of this tank was Johann Reinhart up until the end of september 1943 when he was killed in an engagement, being posthumously awarded the german cross in gold for his part as assistant platoon leader. I don't know who the commander in this picture is.
