0141 | Photo | 11. Panzer-Division



Operation 25. The beginning of attack of the 1st Armoured Group, the conqueror of Belgrade; direction: Caribrod–Niš–Belgrade. Weather: snow, rain and hail. The group was spearheaded by the "Ghost Division" (11th Armoured Division), whose vehicles are seen in the photograph; in the foreground is the unusual and rare four-wheeler/crawler, Saurer RK-7 (Sd.Kfz. 254) – the vehicle which, depending on the terrain, used either wheels or tracks (the wheels were lowered, or retracted, based on need). Only 128 of them had been produced, and they were mainly used as artillery observers. The one in the photo belongs to the 3rd Battery of the Artillery Regiment – and in the background can be also seen the so-called Small Armoured Command Vehicle [kleiner Panzerbefehlswagen], Sd.Kfz. 265.

Operacija 25. Početak napada 1. oklopne grupe, osvajača Beograda; pravac: Caribrod–Niš–Beograd. Vremenske prilike: sneg, kiša i grad. Na čelu grupe nalazila se "Sablasna divizija" (11. oklopna divizija), čija se vozila vide na fotografiji; u prvom planu je neobični i retki četvorotočkaš/guseničar, Zaurer RK-7 (Sd.Kfz. 254) – vozilo koje je, zavisno od terena, koristilo ili točkove ili gusenice (točkovi su spuštani, odnosno podizani, po potrebi). Proizvedeno ih je svega 128, i korišćeni su uglavnom kao artiljerijski osmatrači. Primerak na slici pripada 3. bateriji artiljerijskog puka – a u pozadini se vidi i tzv. malo oklopno komandno vozilo [kleiner Panzerbefehlswagen], Sd.Kfz. 265.
