I'd like to know if anyone has seen a higher resolution version of this photo? I found it over on the Tiger in Focus website but I wasn't able to get any additional information about it. The photo probably shows Tigers 331 and 332 from the sPzAbt 502 sometime in very early 1944. Thanks in advance.

Hi Shane,
The front Tiger is '301' not '331' (followed by '332' and '3xx'):

There's copy of the photo in Trojca's latest 'Tiger Vol.2' but it not much sharper than the photo above, if at all.
Was this not originally a Bundesachiv photo? You could try searching them.

Grant.

You're right, that is 301. I need to proofread more carefully. I thought it was a bundesarchiv photo but I haven't been able to locate it. I probably just need to take another look.
