Tigre. On reflection, you may be right.

Do we think the three digits above are hollow white, or red, bordered with white?
Thanks. Dave.

Nice clean photo. Thanks for posting.
Do we think 8th Panzer Regiment on account of the style of numbering?
David, the white side walls on all the tyres is the indicator of PR 8 here.

Hello to all :D; hey Dave.......................................

hollow white, or red, bordered with white?

I tend to think that the figures in that picture were hollow white, compare with the ones below with figures red bordered white (I guess).............................

Hi Raul.

That's a great photo. I've not seen it before. Definitely not hollow white.
Can we tell if that is an Ausf A or B?
And which unit?

Thanks for posting.
Kind Regards,
David.
Thanks. Dave.

Hello Dave :D; my guess...................................

I would say Pz Kw I Ausf. A due to its three return rollers and (I think) due to its numbering of more than one figure PR 5. Cheers. Raúl M 8).

If it is an Ausf A, then I agree with you. The only Ausf A I can find are in the initial allocation to I and II / 5Pz Reg.
Thanks. Dave.

Hello to all :D; more...............................

Pz Kw III to Libya 1941.

As specified in the Panzer-Tracks, in these photos we see a Pz Kw III Ausf. F being prepared for shipping to North Africa, however I did not find any photos of a Pz Kw III Ausf. F in this theater. Does anyone know if they were dispatched and how many? .................................
