Hi guest. Your image is reversed, have a look at the license plate.
Several sites has it identified as a Reichswehr dummy tank based on the Adler Standard 6. Link to an other image of a dummy with front cover/armor removed

Prosper Vandenbroucke and Waleed Y. Majeed thanks for the reply and information

by the way it writes tankwagen but it doesn't have to do with a tank since it is an armored car (panzerwagen)

it seems to be a rarity and the front of the hull reminds of a cat :D :D

It’s not as much what it is but more what it’s supposed to be. In this case a “tank” for training purpose.

Hi guest,

this vehicle was built from 1930 until 1932 (source: "Kraftfahrzeuge und Panzer der Reichswehr, Wehrmacht und Bundeswehr ab 1900" by Werner Oswald).
B.t.w. the pic is the wrong way around.
And here another pic of this vehicle (RW - 3135). Interesting, that it was forbidden for boys 5 years or older to throw rocks at this contraption at any range (source: "Militärfahrzeuge of the Wehrmacht" by Kurt Rieger and Uwe Feist).

Regards

Bert

"Interesting, that it was forbidden for boys 5 years or older to throw rocks at this contraption at any range" "interesting"? because it didn't had any real armor you mean :wink: :wink:

aerodynamically speaking it seems to be far ahead of its era with flushed headlights to the hull

Cat or owl..? Not that far ahead of its time. Have a look at the few year later Adler model 2,5 Liter/“Typ 10” or earlier Steyr 50/“Steyr Baby” and probably a few more for that matter.
