Vehicle Identity Requests: Allied & Neutral States

Post by Bill Murray » 18 Aug 2007 16:12

Someone asked for this some time ago but no-one started it so if I may, I will.
Hopefully the Moderators will make it a sticky.

First one.
Bill

Quite so, Chris and not only did I forget that, I forgot that I also posted on the thread.

So, we need to combine the two and get it set up as a Sticky. That is up to the moderators and tomorrow AM I will petition them to do so.

We now have "Sticky" status so we better kick start this thread and get it going so we maintain that status.

For this one, I am cheaating a bit. A very old ebay photo showing captured vehicles at a port. I believe most if not all are French vehicles so will sneak them in as allied ones.

Any French experts out there??

Congrats on the sticky, Bill. I guess I should've mentioned that it was O.K. to merge my thread with this one. So, as of right now, any moderators that want to merge my above-mentioned thread with this one, please do so.

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris:
Yes, we are a go as a sticky, thanks to Marcus.
But......we have to maintain the momentum to keep that status.
I did mention in a PM to Marcus that you had originally started the thread.

I'm looking for ID of this improvised RAF armored AA truck.

Found here: http://community.livejournal.com/shushp ... 84807.html
The source indicates that it is armed with a 20mm Hispano cannon and that it may be a Morris.

Sitz:
Based on the wheel equipment and the semi-forward control design, I suggest it is a Fordson. Please see the two photos here.

Can anyone ID the cannon in Sitz's photo? It looks like 20mm for sure, but I don't have access to my usual sources (most of my books are still packed and I'm still putting together my list of web bookmarks). Is it an Oerlikon or something else? The muzzle doesn't look right for an Oerlikon.

As I wrote in the original post, it's a Hispano. Unfortunately the mount is obscured, but I venture to guess that it is one of the hastily made mounts in the dark post-Dunkirk days. Like the Hazard RN mount...

I'm looking for an ID of this staff car. Apologies for not showing the whole thing but apparently the photographer was mored focused on the individuals.

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris:

Your vehicle is a Car, Medium, 4X4 Kfz 15 Staff Car that seems to have been captured by the British. This is the early version with the stub mounted spare wheels. Made by Horch and Opel
