We received a message from David. R. Roy pointing out what should have been obvious to us; that the Panzer IV/70(V) on page 2 is actually a Befehlswagen. If the tactical number of ‘201’ (a company commander’s vehicle) did not give it away, it should have been the extra antenna mount clearly visible on the engine deck. Regular Pz.IV/70(V)s were fitted with an antenna mount on the right side of the engine deck, just behind the fighting compartment. This one is somewhat higher and set further back. The crop from the original Signal Corps shot below also shows to good effect the moulding seam on the spare roadwheel carried on the engine deck, modellers take note. Thank you to David for spotting this.
