"New Model PzKw 2" from Tactical and Technical Trends

The following brief description of a six-wheeled Panzer II captured in Tunisia appeared in Tactical and Technical Trends, No. 26, June 3, 1943.

A damaged PzKw 2 tank has been captured in Tunisia by the British, with 6 bogie wheels instead of the usual 5 on each side. The front vertical plate is in one piece and extends straight across the full width of the superstructure, instead of being in two sections with the right side inclined at an angle of about 45 degrees to the rear.
