this print is generally known as K-Wagen in manufacture which most of us already know

 

the problem is, where are the rear machine guns both side?

 

i can't fine any comments about that pic in reference

In May 1990 as part of my research into the Flying Elephant and K-Wagen, David Fletcher of the Tank Museum kindly sent me photocopies of drawings in their archives. The early version K-Wagen drawings illustrated above were among the documents he sent me, though as his archival materials were only photocopies themselves, my copies of those copies are somewhat poorer than what appears in the Kaufhold-Roll book (of which I now have a copy anyway). What's not in that book is an interesting drawing of roller-track links David Fletcher provided, which I scanned and posted on LS forum a while ago here:

They are, I suspect, the tracks designed for that early version of the K-Wagen, as the drawing shows the rollers in closely-linked pairs evenly distributed all around the track frames, rather than the bogies along the lower edge of the track frames in the drawings of the later K-Wagen design as actually built.
