We are a pragmatic bunch as you can see (from the German Wikipedia article on the MG3)...

Not far from where I grew up they kept one that had broken down in the village square till the mid-50s...

Took that long for a specialist welding crew to get round to taking it apart for scrap.

I can believe that. 50 - 60 odd tonnes of hardened steel is not something the bin men can just carry away

Found a picture of it...was a Königstiger even.

Edit: The article that had the pic mentions it was disabled by American infantry with a pilfered Panzerfaust; it didn’t just break down.

If you want to chat WW2 history some time I‘m all ears.

I saw a scan of a complete Tigerfiebel online once, but no original I’m afraid.
