Hi Francy,

Thanks for your help . I knew this site but that I'm looking for it's a picture witch shows the frame where fit the radio pots.

The SDKFZ 251/6 was equiped with a FuG 12 and à Fug 19. The Fig 12 is in fact a set with 3 posts. But I can't find how are they mounted in the frame and where the cables go.

Anyway thanks for your pics it's always kind to have good ref pics. :wink:

Hi everybody!
I just want to point out that this 251 is a regimental commander's model (see the Enigma decyphering machine in lowest left corner)..in this case the 251 of Heinz Guderian, portraited in the middle of the photo...
AFAIK only 251s attached to regiment command had the enigma...am I right?

S!

Enigma Machines in Command Vehicles

Post by Alter Mann » 24 Dec 2005 23:18

To zipper_mx5: I've seen very few pictures of Enigma machines even in command vehicles. This may even be the only one that I have seen.

I would also be interested in knowing what level of command rated an Enigma if anyone has any information.

Hello to all :D; a little complement...............................

Sd.Kfz. 251/6 mittlere Kommandopanzerwagen in Poland 1939.

AFAIK until early 1943 there was only the Sd. Kfz. 251/6 as medium command vehicle, while the Sd. Kfz. 251/3 was rated as towing vehicle for the IG 18. In 1943 the latter was discontinued and reclassified as Sd. Kfz. 251/3 Mittlere Funkpanzerwagen (radio medium vehicle). So what happened with the production of the Sd. Kfz. 251/6? Was replaced by the Sd. Kfz. 251/3?

Raul, you've misread something there I think, the SdKfz 251/4 was the towing vehicle for the 7,5cm leIG18, not the 251/3 which was always a "mittler Funkpanzerwagen" .

Hello Alan :D: yes could be....Neverthless take a look here

http://www.kfzderwehrmacht.de/Homepage_ ... 51-03.html

"The mittlere Funkpanzerwagen (Sd. Kfz. 251/3) - an armoured radio vehicle – appeared first in the D600 of 6th July 1943."

Also here the Sd.Kfz. 251/3 was the towing vehicle and the Sd.Kfz. 251/4 was the ammo vehicle (later towing vehicle also)

I can not ascertain the accuracy but I guess is pretty good. Cheers. Raúl M 8-).

That is new to me but I'd say that we do have to take those two sites seriously but the list of sub-types in the Ryton Publications book on the "Schützenpanzer" has the 251/3 as a radio vehicle and the 251/4 as the infantry gun tow, as do the lists in "Encyclopedia of German Tanks of WW2" and the little Bellona and Almark books on the subject. All of these books do of course pre-date the two sites so perhaps there is relatively new information not known to those authors. I'm sure someone will tell us.
