    seems like a total waste of Panther hulls just for AAA. :confused: What were they thinking :insane:

    Commonality? Either you criticize the Jerries for pulverizing vehicle types or you criticize them for rationalizing, make your mind up! :)

    Actually that was kind of good thinking. The Panther was to be Germany standard tank in 45 onwards (as the production of pzkw IV faltered) so, having an AA system on the same hull and chassis saved a lot of diferent parts on the inventory allowing for better and faster repairs. Plus the twin 37mm were killers of low flying aircrafts whereas the 20mm even in quad mounts had limited potential.

    The square turret gave it away :p I was tempted to say G but, upon a closer inspection and thinking of the people in this forum I got "woah there!!! that'd bew too easy" then I noticed the turret :p

    I'll post one up once I get home.

    Look at the Turret front. It's diferent than the one on the Ausf F or G. It has some aplique armor irrc and the shape is diferent.

    Now, guess this one :D

    Curious, that is the three man light tank A3E1, aka, Carrier MG No 1. Built by the Royal Ordnance Factory in 1926.

    Just one of the strangest evolutionary dead-ends in tank design. Two turrets, one at each end. With the chap in the back completely isolated. Similar to a heavy bomber, I suppose.

    Anyhoo.. what's this?
