Tiger # 231 of sPz.Abt.501 looks like this Tiger is painted dark yellow. Those little tubes atop the tactical number are three S-mine dischargers. Check out the helmits attached with extra track links, and the tow cables along the hull, if this Tiger get stuck in the mud it will need another Tiger to pull her out. schwere Panzer Abteilung: Heavy Armord Division/Section

Contrary to the comment above, the three tubs atop the tactical number are smoke candle dischargers. However, this Tiger does have S-mine dischargers fitted - they can be seen near the front and back corners of the hull top and one halfway back, just below the turret pistol port in this photo. On the opposite side of the hull, there would have only been two, one at each corner.
