One theory is that Wittmann's Tiger was destroyed by an RP-3 rocket fired by allied planes, though no record of any tanks being destroyed in the battle can be found in the records of the RAF's 2nd Tactical Air Force.
Wonder which sherman firefly commander shoot micheal wittmans tiger and destroyed it
Another claim is that Joe Elkins, of the 1st Northamptonshire Yeomanry, 3 Troop, "A" Squadron, gunner in a Sherman Firefly, has also been credited with taking out Wittmann's Tiger. This was the most widely accepted version of Wittmann's death.
Lastly, another plausible theory is that a tank from "A" Squadron, The Sherbrooke Fusiliers Regiment, 2nd Canadian Armoured Brigade, commanded by Major Sydney Radley-Walters, were the ones responsible for the destruction of Wittmann.
