Greetings Panzerwreckers. Martin Cavell recently touched base clarifying what the item is on the roof of the Beobachtungswagen on page 75 of Panzerwrecks X.

Greetings Panzerwreckers. Javier Tome touched base over the Christmas/New Year break with a location update for the Panzer IV/70(A) on page 204 of Forgotten Archives 1.

This report of an action by a troop of Sherman tanks and an infantry platoon affords a good example of quick thinking and initiative on the part of individual tank commanders. […]
