HI!! :)

This well known photo of a blown-up armored car in Berlin was actually one of the Schwedish Kompanie's vehicles in the Nordland Division. It could have been company commander Pehrssons command vehicle that was shot up on the Friedrichstrasse just south of the Hitler Chancellery on the 1st of May, 1945. The fallen Unterscharführern to the right of the armored car is in that case identical with the driver in the car, Ragnar Johansson from Stockholm, that was killed by a Russian handgrenade. It's most likely that the armored car had participtaed in the attempt to break out of the city on the night to the 2nd of May. The picture was taken by the Russian reporter Mark Redkin. At a picture reconstructuion, at place in Berlin, the researcher Lennart Westberg positioned the place for the photo to be Friedrichstrasse 107 with the walls of the guardhouse in the backround, 200m north of the river Spree.

The picture does not necessarily have to be of a vehicle of the 116. PzDiv.

As of June 1942 there had been a tank batallion (116. Panzer-Abteilung) assigned to the 16. Infanterie-Division (mot). This division was redesignated as the 16. Panzergrenadier-Division on 23.06.1943, and again on 28.03.1944 as the 116. Panzer-Division. The division had tanks and maintained the same symbol through its various incarnations.

Cheers

Not sure what kind of vehicle, but the sign is of B-Abt 26. I believe they are packing up to leave the Volkhov area near Kirishi in early 1944 when this picture was taken.

Maybe someone can ID the vehicle from the frontal picture?
