    Does this Sherman tank photo seem odd to you? Any idea where and when it was taken? There is nothing written on the backside.

    Is it a 105mm? I'm no expert though. Do you notice something?

    There seems to be a slight lack of roadwheels which begs the question 'how did it get there?' And why is the track still on?

    It is in a better state than some of the 1 DB tanks! Even Allied Units were salvaging road wheels from wrecks so I presumes the wheels (bar the one snagged behind the sprocket) were removed and this wreck then shunted sideways off the road and that is why there is a build-up of earth on the side facing the camera.

    Many She man's were in use by the Russians and those standing on and around do not look Germany.
    Could be a beute Russian Sherman ( Captured by Germans ) and then recaptured or put out of action by the Russians.
