    The Houffalize Panther was repainted in the 1990's, note the vehicle spec. is in French not German. It's interesting to note that the idler sprockets (rearest wheel/cog) appear to have been removed with their tensioning spigots at some time, and then replaced upside down, as they are far too low.

    Houffalize is a small market town in Belgium ... in the Walloon region and Luxembourg Province ... and had 4,802 inhabitants
