This diorama features Michael Wittmann’s Tiger tank, belonging to 501st SS Heavy Tank Battalion, next to an 8 ton semi track 3.7cm flak 37 sd.kfz 7/2 at rest beside an abandoned village home in Kischentsy, Ukraine.
Four exhausted soldiers from Battalion 113 (Panzer Grenadier Regiment) are seen walking by on a muddy village road, probably after an encounter with Soviet T-34 tanks in the large offensive.
This #007 late-production Tiger was destroyed at Villers Bocage, France, during the retreat further from Ukraine in 1944, by several Sherman VC "Firefly" tanks, part of British 7th Armored Division.
