Indochina you mean ?

Some photos from World war 1 on the Balkan front, kind of not so popular among western historians Though it had its significance.

Thats not exactly a battle photo, but its interesting nevertheless, those are bulgarian soldiers, infront of a wooden tank used for target practice. I personally haven't heard about tanks being used on the Balkan front, but since they trained on them, maybe it was in case the british or the french bring some. The photo is from 1918, exactly at the end of the war.

Do not be confused by the helmets, again bulgarians, those are "sturmovaks" (yes my nickname comes from there ).

Liturgy on the front. Note that there isn't only a priest, but also an imam behind him, for the bulgarian turks in the army:

The gun mantlet deffinatly looks like that of the Panther. But the muzzle looks similar to that of a German 205 artillery piece and the hull looks to be that of a Sherman.This seems to be a bit of a hybrid.

good to have ya back Bish

they probably had to make adjustments for the lack of spare parts. another modified example would be the israeli super sherman which had a 105mm gun and extra armour plating.

Thanks Irish.

The Super Sherman is the first thing i thought of. I did have a look into the Panther being used by the French, as i never realised they did. But it sems they had two battalions of them post war.

If its ok with you, i would like to post that photo on a model forum i go on to see what the guys there make of that.
