Ian, not a hull mg I'm afraid, not even the front of a tank in the pic.

Rich, very close but you need to think a little deeper, not an L or M or N for that matter.

The very thing. I cropped this pic from a photograph of one found abandoned in Holland during Market Garden. It had belonged to the HG Training Regiment apparently. I thought that perhaps the fact that the antenna trough had been stripped from it might confuse. I believe that I can just make out the edge of the pot for the star antenna hidden by the open engine cowl.

Are you choosing the next question Rich, if I get it right I will add one that I have found, I will keep it up my sleeve until you have had your go, but it should be meat and drink to you guys.

Thanks Alan,
I had a toss up between J & L-M models. Couldn't reconcile the lack of an armored cooling louver and now I know why. Anyway good quiz subject now let me see what I can dredge up.

Hi Ian - yes if you have the correct answer to what I post you will have control.

Complete stab in the dark here Rich, but is it a Ausf E and its roll is Panzerbefehlswagen?

Brano, don't tell that to Wikipedia who don't know that the drive sprocket was different even if the road wheels might have looked vaguely similar.
