Bergepanzer Tiger (P)

History: In September 1943, three Bergepanzer Tiger (P) were converted from the Tiger (P) chassis and issued to schwere Panzerabteilung 501.  The conversion was completed in similar manner to the Ferdinand self-proppeled gun.  The engines were mounted in the centre of the tank chassis, and a new superstructure was added at the rear.  A ball-mount was provided for the sole armament, a 7,92mm MG34.  Other than a small derrick crane, rams and timber beams, no special recovery equipment was fitted.
