    That appears very similar to this:

    An M43, enlisted panzer field cap. This week, beginning Thursday, I'll wear it as I drive this,

    ... at a WWII Battle of the Bulge reenactment at Ft. Indiatown Gap, Pennsylvania.

    (Disclaimer: I am not a nazi. I don't even consider myself a reenactor. I am a former U.S. tanker who was handed an opportunity to drive the beast many of us likely saw in Saving Private Ryan.)

    That :censored: mother :censored: :censored: :censored: thing has more issues than a season of Jerry Springer. Yet we roll to The Gap on Thursday morning.

    It's not a Tiger at all, BTW, it's an old soviet T34 dressed to look like a Tiger, with an old Detroit V8 diesel in it!

    You are correct that the origin of my cap and that in your photo is same. From 1920´s or so Germany.
    But my cap is a new made exact copy of the cap that my countrys armed forces used from 1930´s to about 2010. Nowaday they use only camo caps that looks like ball caps.

    Yeah, worked with several of the German armed forces in Afghanistan. Totally jealous of your camouflage pattern.

    typically a ball cap with one of these two unit identifiers of the USAFSS units I was assigned to in the early 70s...
    6918th Security Squadron, Hakata Air Station, Japan
    6922nd Security Group, Clark Air Base, Philippines

    A T34 is probably the best overall tank of the second war. I loved to read how it kicked butt everywhere it went.

    No way could I get a mustache like that! But the chopper ride was phenomenal enough for me to want a hat.
