Any chance of seeing more pictures of that barrel sleeve on the PZ IV bow MG?
- Rikard_HufschmiedWithout the structural support of the actual barrels the MG 34 shrouds are quite fragile. The Bow shroud looks like someone has been standing on it, and probably a lot of people have.
Do you have close-ups of the flash hider assemblies? This is getting a tad "nerdy", but hey I confess I'm a panzer nerd
- Mircea87I know this is an old thread, but this info might be interesting.
30 years ago there was only the chassis of the tank at the museum (which had a different location back then, it was not on Vacarescu street). Col. Lupastean Aurel found out that a half buried German turret was lying around somewhere in Dobruja at a tank school. He went there to see for himself: it was a genuine T4 turret. After he recovered the turret, he personally took care of the work. The turret was mounted on the hull of the tank and a soviet 76 mm gun was installed in the turret. By the way, the tank was initially painted for desert camouflage, it was probably from a Afrika Korps delivery, but never made it there.
This is not my research, I'm just translating a Romanian comment from ww2.ro. The person who wrote the comment is the son of col. Lupastean, now retired.
Interesting stuff, isn't it?
