Tiger 113 was one of the first 20 Tigers issued to s.Pz.Abt. 503. Several photos show it heavily whitewashed while bearing its original white numeric digits. Following the renumbering of Spring 1943, we see this 'Initial' Tiger newly camouflageed and bearing the number 113 painted in black digits. But then this Tiger disappears from the photographic record, and its turret is given to another Tiger, black 123.
