Anyone any idea what this is? It's based on a Czeck Tatra OAVZ 30 Armoured Car, but is it a German conversion, or as I suspect a post war stop gap for the new Czeck army? Check (sorry!) the vehicles in the background.

Hi Phil:

I am sending this off in a hurry as I am away for some hours, but.......

As you know, armoured vehicles are not in my area of research but I do recognize the vehicle as the model you describe.

However, the registration plate, the uniform of the lad to the side and more importantly, what I seem to see as Tatra and perhaps Praga vehicles of the early war period in the background in very pristine condition would indicate to me that this is a photo taken prior to the German takeover.

Of course, I can always be wrong as I often am.

Bill

Excelent pic. This is two rarity vehicles "pre-prototypes" OA vz.30 (armoured T 26 (Tatra 4/12)). Designation number 13.321 is transporter half machine gun unit. On the left is command post vehicle with opened turm (13.322).

Yes it is a Hanomag SS-55, just look at where the wheels are placed. Some Hanomag SS-100s have a cab like the SS-55 but has 4 doors instead of two, yours looks like it has two doors.

Now its my turn.
What type of tank is this (the one with copyright on it)???????? I'm pretty good at identifying armour but his is hard. :?
--I think this is Panther Ausf F but only one of these was made.
--It's too small to be JagdTiger.
--Its superstructure is the wrong shape to be a Jagdpanther.
--Its chassis seems like a Panther chassis

the picture below is a Jagdtiger showing its too big to be the mystery tank.....any ideas

Why do you think it is not an Ausf A or Ausf G?

Best regards, Aleks

It looks like it has a mantlet similar to a JagdTiger and it also looks like it has a superstructure instead of a movable turret. I've asked this question on ww2incolor.com they don't know what it is.

But I think your right :oops: the person on the turret covers the side of the mantlet. That was a dumb moment :oops:

Hi Bert,

Maybe a 1936-37 International C-300. Looks a lot like this one at http://www.adclassix.com/a5/36internationalcoe.html

Markus

Hi there George!

Just curious... :?
Why (when found on eBay.de) did you not post the original photo caption?
2.WK SdKfz LKW Fernlenkwagen Funkwagen WH 40841


It would have saved me the time it took looking for "Fernlenhwagen" :oops:

Very interesting photo. I like the covered windshield... good advertising strategy :lol:
So what exactly is it... A "wind-up" or "remote-controlled" unmanned radio car?
