BREAKDOWN: The only vehicle with enough power to pull a Tiger out of a tight spot, was another Tiger!

The tiger in front is stuck in the mud, if you look closely you can see two logs sticking out from the rear of the tracks, to try and give them grip, the tiger doing the pulling is doing something that was officially 'forbidden' because of risk to the transmission, but happened all the time through necessity.
