I have searched for a long time to find any drawings, etc on these tanks, with no luck thus far. But if you luck up on any please share.


Good Luck with your search!!


All the Best

No, I don't think they played a role in the Polish A7V myth, Which I believe we have busted on a earlier thread. I am sure there is some information some where.  We will just have to keep looking.


All the Best

In case anyone missed it I enclose a snippet from ML last June refering to that Hedi picture.


"Firstly, the vehicles in the pics from the Landships site are not A7V tanks. Rather they are A7Z Gelandewagenen hastily provided with mild steel armor, and armed with 4 Mg08s to suppress the Socialist uprisings in Germany after the armistice. One of these hybreds was named Hedi. These vehicles were utlilised in that capacity until scrapped at the demand of the allies in 1921."

obscurata here,

I know a little about this matter as a compatriot of mine has blueprints (well, about 75% of them anyway) of the Infanteriekampfwagen "Hessen-Cassel" which he is currently re-constructing. It seems that several variations on the basic design were considered and i'm not sure which one would have been used although apparently a couple of prototypes were under construction near the end of the war. If I can talk him into posting (he's not too fond of English) some info it may be of interest to some here.

The other two designs are unknow to me.
