Look like a modified Italian 47/32 self propelled gun.

Hi Roland1369
thank you for the try, but I'm sorry to tell you that it isn't Italian.
If you go a bit further north you'll find the country of origin.

Regards
Armin

Armin, as an aside, was the ADMK actually armoured ? I know it kind of led to the SdKfz 254 which was armoure but I have no idea about the "original".

Hi Alan
originally the ADMK was developed as a prime mover, carrying a crew of 3 with a pulling power
of 1000 kp, pulling infantry and mountain guns or motars. 300 kp of ammunition could be carried.
It was also used as a MG-carrier. Between 1935 and 1938 334 pieces were produced. Under German
control the ADMK was equipped with a superstructure and mainly used in northern front sectors.
Of course it was not armoured. I think the one in the picture was lightly armoured and used as a
security vehicle on an air-field.
The SdKfz 254 did not originate from the ADMK. It was a separate development of the Austrian
Saurerwerke type RR from 1935 which could switch between tracks and wheels while driving slowly.

Thanks, Armin. I was glad to see someone else was pointed at the Semovente 47 by that curved plate on the suspension !
