Hi there

Post by stoveb » 23 Jun 2005 01:43

Hi, nice picture,

According to David Doyle's Standard Catalogue of German Military Vehicles, pg 387, this is a

Panzerspähwagen RK Ausf. A

"The Panzerspähwagen RK was developed by Saurer-Werke in response to a May 1938 request from the German Army automotive design office. Intended for use as an armoured reconnaissance vehicle, it had armor protection proof against 7.92mm armor-piercing rounds and turret designed by Daimler-Benz. Instaled in the turret was an EW 141 7.92mm antitank rifle and a 7.92mm MG34.

A test vehicle constructed of mild steel was delivered in June 1940, which was joined by a second machine that following August. It was anticipated that a trial series of 15 vehicles would begin production in May 1942, but it was doubtful that this occured."

Cheers
Steve

Many thanks for the info!

Sander D has posted the link to the ostpanzer forum - I couldn't stop browsing through it yesterday, so many great (and to me unknown) photos there!
