|Unsuspecting Stug in winter colours|
The wire is bent in a U around the front (or back) of the vehicle. Then twisted up and over the top of the tank. The polyester material (I suspect it is polyester) is then glued to the wire and twisted to give the plume effect (wider at the top than the bottom).
Each time a vehicle is knocked out on the battlefield, a marker is placed over the top to show the progress of battle and who lost what where (the tanks are therefore left in place rather than removed).
The same markers can be used on trucks, AFV's etc. as well as knocked out guns and bunkers (maybe smaller ones for the guns...)

|Boom! Russian ATG gets him.|
