this one far better than I can, so let's hear it from him. [quote]--==Killah==--'s War-Torn Tiger The original Tiger 1 texture has been updated with markings similar to Tiger #S33 of the Spz Abt Das Reich Summer of 1944. This tank battallion served in the eastern front, during the fight for in Kharkov (March 1943)and Kursk (July 1943). The Tiger company changed the first digit from an "8" to an "S" for schwere (heavy) which was followed by a two digit tank number denoting platoon and vehicle. The Tiger company of Das Reich also used a unique white gnome painted on the turret side. The "gnome" emblem used by the 8th Company, was actually known as the "Springender Teufel" (Springing Demon). In Akira Kikuchi's article (AFV News Jan-Apr. 1994 Vol. 29, No.1) he provides some background to this strange emblem. Mr. Will Fey, a veteran of the 8th Tiger company, (and author of Armor Battles of the Waffen-SS) indicated to Mr. Kikuchi that "a tank man of 2.Pz.Regt.Das Reich found a strange metal figure in the streets of Kharkov after the battle in March 1943. He named it Springender Teufel. He was transfered to the Tiger Company, along with the figure, in April at which time the lucky emblem of the Springender Teufel was adopted by the Tiger company.
