A Nazi soldier took the position of troop carrier passenger in 1938 when he and some of his companions mounted a troop carrier in the Republic of Hatay during their pursuit of the Holy Grail. He served under the orders of Colonel Ernst Vogel.
In 1938, after Walter Donovan negotiated with the Sultan of Hatay in order to acquire vehicles and soldiers for their search of the Holy Grail, the Nazi soldier and his companions were assigned to mount one of the troop carriers given to them by the Sultan.
During Indiana Jones' attempt to rescue his father, Henry Jones Sr., and Marcus Brody from Colonel Vogel's tank, the soldier's troop carrier approached with the intention of reinforcing Vogel's efforts to kill the archaeologist. Inside the tank, however, Henry Jones managed to overcome his own assailant and used one of the cannons to blow up the troop carrier, effectively killing the soldier and his comrades.
