Wooden Mount

The German use of dug in tanks and tank turrets in defensive urban combat is pretty well known, but this is a rarity indeed: a 37 mm tank gun on a wooden mount.


The caption reads: "German 37 mm tank gun. The gun is installed on a wooden mount and was used to fire from house windows and from concealed positions durin street fighting for the Torun fortress."
