Panzerwrecks X P75 – is it a box?

Greetings Panzerwreckers. Martin Cavell recently touched base clarifying what the item is on the roof of the Beobachtungswagen on page 75 of Panzerwrecks X. Over to Martin: “Re-reading the excellent PW10, I figured something out, but it’s almost too trivial to share. P. 75, the Pz.Beob.Wg.IV. The “box like item” obscuring the TSR1 mount to […]

Panzerwrecks X P92-95: A Tiger ‘Then & Now’

Regular contributor to Panzerwrecks, Matthias Radu kindly sent us some information and comparison shots of the Tiger I knocked out at Berlebeck. Over to Matthias: “The abandoned Tiger sat on the shoulder of Paderborner Straße between Berlebeck and Heiligenkirchen. The Tiger facing uphill, coming from Detmold. The area has changed considerably since, but the prominent building […]

Panzerwrecks X P96: Wirbelwind in Orbec “Then & Now”

Some time ago I was contacted by Lionel Gonnet who kindly shared a couple of “Then & Now” style photos with us of the 12thSS prototype Wirbelwind photographed in Orbec. Apparently it was photographed on the road to Livarot. I took the liberty of Photoshopping the original wartime photo, taken by Major Sangster onto Lionel’s […]

Panzerwrecks X P22 – Sturmgeschütz III in Berlin – extra photos

Lack of space meant that we could only use one shot of the Sturmgeschütz III on the corner of Invalidebstrasse and Brunnenstrasse. Is it us, or does the German policeman bear more than a passing resemblance to a member of the band Devo? It must be that hat. Seen any other lookalikes in Panzerwrecks? Drop […]

Panzerwrecks X P76-7 – Sturmhaubitze 42 Ausf.G

Panzerwrecks X is shaping up as the one Panzerwrecks with the most mis-identifications – so far. David Roy was good enough to notice that the vehicle on Pages 76-77 of PWX is a Sturmhaubitze 42 Ausf G, not a Sturmgeschütz III Ausf G. “On the StuH, the welded mantlet barrel shroud tapers at the end […]

Panzerwrecks X P51 – Drilling Question

After looking at this photo – again – I am at a loss as to how the ammo boxes could be fitted to a mount that was located so far forward in the fighting compartment. They certainly would have interfered with the driver. Perhaps we are seeing a Drilling on the other side of the […]

Panzerwrecks X P2 – Code name ‘Toxic’

For me, the word ‘TOXIC’ painted on the side of the Panzer IV/70(V) on page 2 immediately brought to mind the notion of chemical warfare, contamination, or some other insidious encounter with poisonous substances. (Late in the war, military thinkers were concerned that Hitler might resort to ‘mad dog’ chemical warfare tactics involving poison gas […]

Panzerwrecks X P96 – Production Wirbelwind?

We have it on good authority that the Wirbelwind seen on page 96 and inside the back cover is not a prototype but rather a production vehicle manufactured in July 1944, so please to not take the text on page 96 as gospel. Further details to follow …
