There never were that many Nashorns produced.  However, you could have the Russians, in a fit of madness decide that they should support Israel (as they did in real life it just never eventuated to any hardware) give them a whole load of old German hardware such as Stugs or Panzerjagers of even Panzer IVs.  Russia was the first country to recognise Israel officially...

There were 474 produced.  I am thinking of a story whereby maybe a handful (5 - 10) are sent to the middle east after the war.  Perhaps from schwere Panzerjäger-Abteilung 525 in Italy.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

I think the Italians would be more interested in keeping them for themselves...  The Bulgarians got rid of a load of Stugs and Panzer IVs to the Syrians,  why not to the Israelis instead?

I must admit that I have taken a liking to the look of the various Munitionsschlepper.  I really like the way the main hatch looks:

I really like the look of this bergepanzer III in the last days of the battle for Berlin... a mobile pill box. Complete with ostkettin, too.

Interesting - I have seen that same photo (or a bigger version) reported as being in Königsberg 1945 reportedly fitted with MG 151/20.
