What are these hooks for?
Permalink   


Good day to you all!

looking at some photos of Beute-Mark IV's in the Tankograd books i noticed two hooks on the front of the roof of the drivers cabin.

I have not yet found these hooks on a Mark IV in British service but i do not have that much photos. I have also not found these hooks on all other Beute-Mark IV's....

So, can anyone tell what these hooks were for?

Were these hooks original on the mark IV's when leaving the factory or was it a "German thing"What are these hooks for 1.jpgWhat are these hooks for 2.jpg?

Best regards,

Willem

It's a British thing: the positioning hooks for the fascine, although pushed down so not to obstruct the movement of the unditching beam. Many - but not all - tanks at Cambrai had them.
