That one looks rather odd though. I can't see part of the top hull. :confused:

Well, it's a midget *now*...

Let's just say I got to it with my Katana before the anti-tank guns or aircraft could..

It looks like the suspension has collapsed. That is usually caused by high heat collapsing the suspension.

My guess is it was hit and caught fire or it broke down and the crew set it afire to deny it falling into enemy hands.

EDIT: On closer examination it looks like the turret is sitting on the front of the hull, possibly exploded? Suspension still looks collapsed to me.

Hmm you are probably right. Though if the turret was sitting on the front part of the hull I would expect to see more of a tilt. Turret seems pretty straight. Picture is kinda small though.

Not a whole lot clealer but atleast it confirms that the top part is gone. Doesn't explain yet where it went though (blown away, collapsed into the bottom hull or something else?).

I know it doesn't tell you what hit it either but it gives some info. I think that it was shot at by a 6pounder.
