A huge collection of German/Axis tracked vehicles assembled in a allied marshaling yard somewhere in Northern Africa after the German surrender/evacuation.
Much of this equipment is destroyed or is in inoperable condition. Some of this equipment was recycled & units that could be repaired/rebuilt were used by countries such as Syria,Israel & libya in the post war years. Panzer III & IV were used in the 6 Day War in 1967 & during the Iraq War the US captured a few Lorraine Schleppers (you can see them in the right back ground) in and around Baghdad.
So not everything was tipped into the melting pot.
