Thanks for sharing!
It was a real adventure writing it, I expected to find only little information, but when I expanded the search beyond German publications, I found a great interview with Goebel and some unique pictures in Dutch collections.

A really great article, it's a shame that there is so little information about Goebel. Here is a small addition to the article.

This gets better all the time. My own, even smaller, addition:

Dated Sept 30th, 1916.

Oh wow, that is some obscure info, many thanks Hedi! I'll ammend the article soon with the new insights, really nice.
The small article is also nice James, it's interesting to see how the propoganda is reaching beyond the German borders.

@James H

"....tank, sort of." possibly it was intended as a troop carrier, as it was usual back then

by the way here is another site that mentions the Goebel Landpanzerkreuzer and seems to be before Leander Jobse's brilliant article

indeed Leander Jobse's article has more extraordinary details
