Hi Alan:

I did get a bit lazy, but I figured most everyone knew the vehicle ID anyway. The word "Poser" was really the heart of the quiz as that vehicle was used by many countries.
I am surprised you didn't answer the question yourself as I note that you also frequent the source web site.

Anyway, I am glad we flushed Phil out of his cave and now he can see if he can stump us.

Cheers
Bill

Hi guys

Thanks for the kind words! The reasons for nof posting on this thread very often are 1. Time and 2. There are a lot of softskins here and I am an armour man and don't know a 4x4 from a 1/2 track! I'll try and find you something special though.

As for the gun I nearly went for a Schnieder M36 (which I know the Rumanians used) but it is hard to tell from the photo. I'll post a picture soon.

Hi everyone

Having complained earlier about too many soft skins I'm going to post one myself, but with a twist. Who can polish off an answer to this teaser?

A rather broad hint, Phil.

Looks to me like a Polish C2P artillery tractor.

Bill, The French had a tracked supply vehicle similar to that but I can't remember the name, or find the pic that I had :cry: :cry: :cry: It is in the background of the fourth pic on page 7 in the link below,

An exeptionally low number!

Here is another shot of a C2P which shows some further details of the windscreen and suspension which is why I think it is this vehicle.

Hi guys

Bill is right it is the Polish C2P tractor (not the more widely used C7P). They were used in small numbers by the Germans. And yes that was a terrible pun about "polishing off" the question but what the hey, if you can't have fun with WW2 weapons of mass destruction when can you.

Over to you Bill

Thanks Phil:

I spent one third of my life working with Brits in the US, Sweden, Peru and Canada and have the hightest appreciation for the British Sense Of Humour!!

I apologize for the poor quality of this photo but it is another example of not jumping to your first conclusion.

Polish again, something like a TK-10, the little tankette with the Bofors 37mm a/t gun on it ?

Very close, Alan.

Remember, though, the vehicle was used by several countries and in different versions.

Bill, While I accept it is whatever you eventually reveal, that very pic appears on "Tanks" as being the Polish one, I cheated and did a search on here and found it on the link below . There are certainly a couple of Polish looking officers right rear of the reviewing stand. I must admit I thought of the Australian SP 2pdr when I saw it first. :oops:
