Hello!

There are maybe just 2-3 websites on the net that mention the Orion-Wagen. That's why I decided to post a short German article about that tank on Wikinfo. Wikinfo is a so called Wikipedia-Folk and like Wikipedia it doesn't allow uploading photographs that are copyrighted. So I had to pixel my own picture of that tank. One of the sources I usedis this picture from your great website.

Orion_Wagen_One_Full_Armor.jpg
Does anybody know where it comes from? It looks like an edited photograph and I would like to know how authentic it really is.

PS.: My picture and article of the Orion-Wagen can be found here.

Hello

The photo is in my collection, it was a copy from the original and retouched. It is an authentic representation of the Orion-Wagen.

All the Best

Thanks a lot for the quick answer!

Btw.: At the end of your article about the Orion-Wagen you mention these two books:

'Deutsches Panzers des ersten Weltkrieges'
and
'Deutsches Panzers'

Are you sure that are the real titles? The correct German spelling should usually be Deutsche Panzer instead of Deutsches Panzers.

Hello

I have been asked that question before, and you are quit right, it should be Deutsche Panzer. But the book does have the title as written, correct or incorrect thats the title. I have found a lot of misspelled words in volumes from the 20s and 30s.

All the Best

Tim R.

Maybe these patents from herr Zechlin shed some light on his process for the contraptions he made...

 I think that one has had the Tim Rigsby treatment.

Was this the same traction system used on the third prototype?
