At the Mercedes-Benz polygon

On October 8, 2009, a presentation of military vehicles of all categories took place at the Mercedes-Benz test site in Wörth. It was gratifying that the owners of the relevant driving license were able to personally test the behavior of the vehicles in the field.

The reflection on the construction and dimensions of the load-bearing truss frame of SAF (later Benz & Cie.) Vehicles is based on a study of available photographs and technical data of Benz's commercial vehicles and armored vehicles, known by Russian nicknames: "bronenzovanyj avtobus Bjenz" or "Sjerafina" .

Markings of the German vehicles and tanks in the period 1939-1945

It must have happened to you that you found the same photograph of a German tank in two different books or magazines, but each time it had a label with the text assigning the vehicle to a different tank division. Since I am an inquisitive creature, I did not give it and I tried to collect basic data on the marking of tanks, both at the level of higher organizational units such as divisions, and within lower units, at the level of battalions, companies and platoons. Also, a number of photographs of German technology show a large number of different identification marks or flags, which in most cases are often ignored by the authors and some of us are interested in what this means.
