Two panthers of I.SS-Panzer Regiment 12 smolder in Krinkelt after being knocked out on December 18.
The Panther in the foreground, with tactical number ‘318’, has had its barrel blown off in the viscious fighting that took place against the U.S.99th Infantry Division, reinforced by the 2nd Infantry Division. Attacking in the early morning fog, the Panthers were easy prey for bazooka teams who were able to close in without being spotted. Later Untersharfhrer Willi Fischer, a Panther commander in 3.Kompanie recalled, ’It was an absolute deathtrap for Panzers’.
