Robotnik you forgot the Panzerjeager Bren 731 (e) :P

Also one of my other crazy finds:

A Panzer IV modified to mount a 88mm Flak piece by removing its cupola, you guys might one day see it in the 1949 mod, because Lord Wiffleby really liked my idea on what to do with this design.

Why do the Germans have so many Bren Carriers XD ? Did they like capture a Brit armor Depot or something? :3

By the way does anyone have any info on that second pic I posted, it would be nice to learn more about. I think that it was really a field improvisation thing, not done in a factory but I'm not exactly sure, that's why I would like to know if you have any other info on it

Im just curious. But would the recoil from that 88 gun cause it to harm the Panzer chassis? Or maybe flip it over ;D?

I don't think so, if they could fire an Pak 40 from the back of an RSO, then should have few problems firing an 88 from a Panzer IV.

Why do the Germans have so many Bren Carriers XD ? Did they like capture a Brit armor Depot or something? :3

in 1940 or so when the brits were evacuating from france, they left a lot of equipment behind, which the germans then ended up putting to use. the bren carrier was one of those many vehicles


also some more interesting photos

photo 1- "A PzKpfw IV, or rather what is left of it, from Panzer Lehr Regiment near Audrieu (France). During the British attack of June 10, which was supported by large calibre naval guns, a shell must have scored a direct hit. The type can still be identified as an Ausf H by the small engine on the rear of the body."

photo 2- drawaing of an m10 "sonic", it had an array of loudspeakers mounted on it and it played sounds of tanks running and firing to confuse the enemy

photo 3- list of modifications germans commonly made to captured T34's (unfortunately its in russian so maybe someone who knows russian can translate?)

photo 4- a captured french halftrack fitted with 16 81mm mortars

photo 5- russian drawing on how to destroy an elephant

photo 6- description in photo
