Although all the photos are already known, thanks for posting them here! To me it's still the coolest tank ever ...

Have I looked at the photos for a long time again:

So when I look at the photos like this, the A7V Hedi does not give the impression of a hasty (improvised) construction, it is a well thought out construction. For whatever this was intended in World War I, Nachrichtenwagen?

Looks in some respects, a better design than the original female A7V.

Thanks for your thoughts. And yes, I do not believe either. Close examination of vehicles from the same period, i.e. the Strv m 21-29, contribute a lot to the understandig of contemporary manufacturing technology. The two "Nachrichtenwagen"  suggest that they are two fine examples of late war or even inter war engineering.

Have a look at some details:

The design feature of the louvres on Hedi's upper side can also be found to the LK II.

 

The same applies to the driver and commander domes. A feature that was planned for the "Oberschlesien Wagen".

 

Regards,

Peter

More refined than necessary. Someone spent a lot of time, material and effort to create two sophisticated vehicles - so much time that they never became ready... A very special way of avoiding service in the field.

Hmmm, it seems the misery of German tanks had always been their elaborate design ...
