Pz I ausf C versions

Post by Aufklarung » 18 Aug 2004 14:16

Hi all
Can someone direct me to or provide me with a couple of photos?

I'd like to see the PzKpfW I ausf C (airborne) and the 2cm flak armed version.

I've looked but only found a drawing of the flak vehicle and no clear pics of the Airborne tank.

Thanx in advance. :D

regards
A :)

Howdy

I read somewhere that this vehicle was at times armed with the 12 PzB AT Rifle, does anyone have any info on this? How many vehicles were thusly armed?

Any info appreciated

The Pz.Kpfw. I with a 2 cm Flak was a field modification, so don't expect any standardization with this vehicle.

Thank you again for your help. :)

Paul
Sorry, but I have no idea about PzB armed Pz I's.

Are you sure that "field modification" is an accurate description? achtugpanzer.com says:
Approximately, 24 were produced in early 1941 by Alkett in Berlin and all equipped three batteries (each equipped with 8 vehicles) of 614th Flak Abteilung.
http://www.achtungpanzer.com/pz11.htm#panzer1
That would seem that they were factory made.

That drawing and the photo here http://users.swing.be/tanks.tanks/complet/469.html#1058 make them look rather standardized as well. But they also say that the flakpanzer I was made on the Pz 1 A chassis wereas I thought it was developed on the I C hull. :?

What I'd really like to see is a I C (Airborne) as designed attached to the belly of an A/C with the turret inside the plane for transport.

The Pz.Kpfw. I with the 2 cm Flak was only a field modification. THis is specifically mentioned in Panzer Tracts No.12

Hello.
As said by Christian the Panzer I with Flak 38 20mm is a field modification carried out by workshops and not in factory.
According to an article published in "LES FLAKPANZER N°I" and quoting Stefan König,in 1941 24 Panzer I, would have been transformed in Panzer I with flak 38 and distrubuted in 3 companies of 8 units,these vehicles were used in the Flak-ABT(Mot) 614,this unit was send in the Dniepr aera and used by small groups in support of Infantry units before being destroyed in Stalingrad at the beginning of 1943.
This unit received also some Panzer I modified as Munitionsschlepper"Laube3

Thanx tom! :)

Christian Ankerstjerne (Do you not like my name or like it so much as to shout it out?? :wink: )
I am not one to argue with you, Panzer Tracts No.12, or Patrice's article. So..........what is "Alkett"? :?

Patrice
Thank you. I had the unit but not their specific operations area.

I wasn't shouting, however I have found that when addressing a specific person, it makes it more clear to whom the answer is directed by using that persons name or nickname. ;)

Alkett is a factory

No offence, I was just teasing a little. So......

All FlakPanzer I's were a field mod but........
Alkett is a factory in Berlin.

So Alkett did not make them??

Also I'm still looking for a pic of an Airborne version of the Pz I ausf C preferably attached to an aircraft during trials or what not.

Here's one in Normandy 1944:
