Photo(s) of the Day: The View from Inside a Tiger II

Today’s Photo of the Day feature comes courtesy of author and researcher Ken Estes.  These are some pictures he took while climbing around and inside the Tiger II tank housed at the Musée des Blindés (“Museum of Armoured Vehicles”) in Saumur, France.  These pictures show the view from the various crew positions and give a pretty good idea of just how limited a range of vision WWII era tank crews enjoyed.
