extremely rare panzerkampfwagen NbFz V Jumbo. Only six of these ever existed,
all of them served in Norway, and two were destroyed. Rheinmetall's (PzKpfw
NbFz V) design had 37mm Tankkanone L/45 installed over a 75mm KwK L/24.
It had a crew of 6 men. They where used by Panzerabt.z.B.V 40
rare shot of a German kriegsmarine soldier in a Norwegian uniform. Photo
is taken in Narvik. The reason for this was that the survivours from the
sunken Zerstoerers captured the depot at Elvegaardsmoen with Norwegian
uniforms and used them in lack of German uniforms. Several of these
"Gebirgsmarine" soldiers where later executed by Polish and French soldiers.
I know that German u-boatcrew sometimes used british battle tunics instead
of german tunics, but this is the only time I have heard that land forces
used the enemy's uniform.
