Mysterious armored car
Permalink   


I know it's not new, but I wonder if anything more is known about this armoured car except that it was probably German (or Austro-Hungarian?) and it was probably captured by Russians? Isn't it possible that it was simply built in Russia, not captured?

I wrote earlier in this forum topic: “Armored truck of Benz-Werke Gaggenau built in 1912”.
(Gepanzertes Lastautomobil der Benz-Werke Gaggenau um 1912). German improvised construction (in Prussia). It was built only one. First in the world - Personnel Carrier. Captured by the Russians in East Prussia in August 1914 y. Yours Chris.

It is "Gaggenau" (Süddeutsche Automobil-Fabrik AG in Gaggenau) from 1911. Only one built.

1911 or 1912? What else do we know about this vehicle? Is it true that it was used to partol railway?
