Default Is this a Vickers Amphibious Tank in China?

Hello.

Is this a Vickers Amphibious Light Tank in China in 1942?

Or is it a Soviet T37?

Regards

Yes, a Vickers-Carden-Loyd M1931 Light Amphibious Tank, one of 29 purchased in 1935 by the Chinese Nationalists.

Default Vickers Carden Lloyd

Hello Hanno,

I think you would need to be either very brave, or desparate to drive one of those tanks into water.

Thanks for confirming the tanks origin, and for providing a rear photo.

Regards

Nick Balmer

Default Great Armoured car

Hello Hanno,

I went to the url you posted. What a good site.

Do you know anythink about this armored car shown on the site.

It doesn't appear to be the one on a GMC chassis because it has machine gun armament rather than a 37mm, but it is still very advanced by the standards of the day.

Anybody know which chassis it was built on?

Or have a rear photo.

I would love to build a model of it.

Regards

Nick Balmer

Default german?

Nick,
I am researching this vehicle for some time and I think this was a German design, problably on Krupp truck chassis.
It might be related to the Wilton-Feyerenoord armoured car that was built on a Krupp chassis as well.
I have another pciture of the same vhicle (with a sister car). These two served with the Shanghai Police Dept.
Here's a link with some pictures to add to the discussion:

For the similar WF cars, see my chapter on foreign built armoured cars in Overvalwagens!
Regards,
Nuyt
