Hello all,

I'm searching infos about the Panzerkampfwagen I Ausf C and I've got a question about a kind of roll near the front visor of the driver.

Look at this:

Hi
In english : on your pics it's not a panzer I Ausf C, it's a Panzer II and not Ausf C, it's a model over G version.

In french : sur la photo ce n'est pas un Panzer I c'est un Panzer II d'une version superieure à la C : le train de roulement est celui du G du H et au dela

Begging your pardon, but it is a Panzer I C.

Sorry, Falou; I can back you up on what kind of vehicle it is, but what that gizmo you've pointed out was for ... I've no idea.

Yours,
Paul

Isn't it a vent for river fording? The Panzer I had a snorkel tube vent looking thing for that purpose, didn't it?
