No,  SU-76 had smaller road wheels.   I have looked at the SU-85, SU-100, every version and variant of T-34 I can think of and nothing matches.

Behold the power of the internet and enough free time on Pinterest:   caption says  "US soldiers watching interior of unfinished German prototype of self-propelled gun (17cm Kanone 72 (Sf) Geschutzwagen Tiger). Vehicle supposed to have 7 or 8 members of crew. "

WTF - Hitler must have had a small penis, everything had to be HUGE with him. Good work finding this.

I'm not very hip on social media and all the new internet toys but Pinterest is my new favorite.   There are thousands of WWII photos on there I've never seen before.     40+ years as a WWII hobbyist and I thought I had seen just about every German tank photo in the world,  boy was I wrong   LOL.

Another example of what's out there on Pinterest:  King Tiger hulls stacked up somewhere, presumably at a factory after wars' end since they appear to be just out in a field somewhere:

Niiiice find!

But a little sad too. I thought I could brag with my über-vehicle knowledge form my old modelling days, as I imideately identified the vehicle and my jaw dropped - I never thought it made it past the drawing board and was generally just a silly idea.
But then Adolf ordered the "Maus" into production as well....   Jester  

So kudos for the initial picture and identifiying it! Helmet Smile

I've been looking at pictures of German tanks since 1971, but I have been astounded at how many photos are out there on Pinterest that I've never seen before.
