Sd.Kfz. 251/6 C identification unit.

Post by edgardo gil » 20 Sep 2014 04:02

This is one of the few pics that I know of a 251/6 C with the telescopic and frame antennae.
Please somebody can identify to which unit belongs?
The second pic show a zoom in the panzer general, maybe this could be a clue.
By the way, somebody knows another pics of this vehicle within other units?
Many thanks.

Original Bundesarchiv description of this photo: ''...auf dem rechten Fahrzeug ist der kommandierende General des XXIV. Panzerkorps, General der Panzertruppe Willibald Freiherr von Langermann und Erlencamp beim Kartenstudium.''
I’m reading a book about anti-gravity. It’s impossible to put down.

On that date (june-july 1942) the General der Panzertruppe Willibald Freiherr von Langermann was the commander of the XXIV Armee Korps, later in june named XXIV Panzer Korps.
Maybe the vehicle shows the XXIV Panzer Korps symbol, I don´t know how the XXIV Panzer Korps symbol looks.

Hi Edgardo,

here a pic with two "mittlerer Funkpanzerwagen" command halftracks with the telescopic and frame antennae seen during the Balkans campaign in 1941 (source of the pic: Bundesarchiv), but I cannot tell You the unit. Mayeb it is interesting for You.

Regards

Bert
