Panzerwrecks 19 – some additions from Daniele Guglielmi

Daniele Guglielmi, long-time ‘friend of Panzerwrecks family’ sent in some additional information regarding some of the subjects in Panzerwrecks 19: Yugoslavia. Over to you Daniele:

  • Pages 10 and 11, one of the Semovente L40 da 47/32 is an early production (it had the side hatch, even if welded shut in the factory), the other one is a final production.
  • Page 12, the armoured shields were trench shields, used by the Italian Royal Army.
  • Page 13, the two machineguns are Italian 8mm Breda 37s.
  • Page 21, the Libli (LIttorina BLIndata, armoured railway machine) Mod. 42 was armed also with two 45mm Brixia mortars (no 81mm mortar) and two flame-throwers.
  • Page 29, the truck seems an Italian Fiat 666.
  • Page 30, the truck seems different, probably a French Renault AHR.
  • Page 34, the tankette is a L3/35 (bolted hull and casemate).
  • Page 35, the truck is an Italian Fiat 626, the tankette a L3/33 (riveted).
  • From page 26 to 29, the M15/42 tanks are early production samples; at page 47 the tank is a final sample (modified driving wheel, camouflage) and I don’t think that it belonged to the Pz.Abt.z.b.V.12.

Panzerwrecks 19 page 60 – location update

Hats off to Janez Čokl for correcting the location of the Jagdpanzer 38 on page 60 of Panzerwrecks 19: Yugoslavia. Over to Janez:

I saw one location mistake in Panzerwrecks 19 (nice work). Photo of Hetzer on page 60 was taken in Celje, not in Maribor. (Google street view linkProbably was the same vehicle like those one on the page 59. This two locations on both photos are not far away (see attachment).

Got a correction? Know something we don’t? Get in touch.
