White or Red Mgebrov-Renault
Permalink   


 

Attached is an image of a Mgebrov-Renault armoured car captured/abandoned at the Narva railway station, Estonia, in 1918.

Anyone know which army the Mgebrov-Renault served with before it was captured by the Germans?

Regards,

Charlie

Narva was captured by Germans 4th of March 1918. No any white armies were formed in this region till that time. From the other side, red army just only started to form. It was presented by small detachments of "curtain". The detachment of Pavel Dybenko was in Narva, but I am not sure, that this AC belong to Dybenko group. So, most probably that this AC abandoned de old Russian Army.

Thank you.

I had thought the Tsarist armoured cars were generally painted grey but this Mgebrov-Renault is an exception. The colour, whatever it is, is much darker than the Feldgrau uniforms

of the German troops examining the armoured car. Any ideas on what colour it might have been?

Regards,

Charlie

Most usable colours are Dark Green, Grass Green, Yellow Ochre. In the book of Baryatinskiy/Kolomiets colour of Mgebrov-Renault marked as Dark Green? but looks like grey on colour picture. I think that it is problem of tipography.

Thank you very much. I loved the badges of the armoured car units. The badge designers went quite overboard on some of those designs - fantastic.

Regards,

Charlie
