Knocked-out Panther tank disguised as an M10 Tank Destroyer part of Skorzeny's false flag effort - Operation Greif. Skorzeny had been tasked by Hitler to cause chaos in the rear areas of the Allies using troops disguised as Americans. The operation did cause some confusion, but the largest effect was to keep Eisenhower off the battlefield for several days. Ike finally revolted and said he had to get out and he didn't care if someone tried to kill him.
