Reading through the whole article, it would appear to be an elaborate, and well done, work of fiction! Could you imagine being the poor bast*rd in the Pz II, trying to locate the enemy, and rolling up on that!?!?!?

read it, it's a modelmaker's model.

IF it was real it would bottom out on the first bump or hill it ran into.

The article says that in 42 it was sent to Leningrad front. How? By plane? Ice road across the lake? Impossible.
