A Waffen-SS crew replenish their Tiger’s ammunition through the loader’s hatch in the turret roof during Battle of Kursk. The 8.8cm rounds have colored projectiles for quick identification during battle conditions. The shells with the markings “Pzgr.39” and “FES” are armor piercing and the tip is painted black. The other shells are probably high explosive which were normally carried in equal quantities.
