From the Vault: British Motion Studies on German Tanks

20131231_092550Today we present a British study from December of 1947 on ‘Motion Studies of German Tanks.”  This report examines the ergonomics of late WW2 German tanks Tiger, Tiger II an Panther.  The report focuses on crew comfort and efficiency, looking at each crew position and providing analysis.  Detailed charts of gun loading times are included in the report, as are diagrams of the ammo storage layout.  This report was photographed at a archive by a friend of the site.  We have put the report into a PDF and posted it on Internet Archive.  The quality of the photos varies, although the report is legible.  Due to the way it was photographed, many of the pages are at a bit of an angle.
