This is tiger S33 commanded by SS-UnterscharfĂĽhrer Johann Reinhardt, he's on the left. He'll be dead within 6 months of this photo being taken, killed during the end of the Kursk offensive. You can see the 'lucky' chinese symbol on the left front that makes his tank so recognizable. The marking on the right is the divisional marking.
