    Paul, I don't doubt your statement In the least, but I am most curious as to how you belive this to be a command vehicle? Is it the turmnummer?

    I think R01 is a command number, but I can be wrong

    Hi René, you are on the right track.

    Regimental commanders and staff used "R0" series so the regimental commander could be R00 or R01 and his Adjutant would be either R01 or R02.

    As ever model makers sites are a big help:

    Rene amd Ade are correct my deduction that it was from the RHQ group was from the Turret number !!

    Thanks guys! I forgot that I actually have a photo of an "R03" command tank. Doh! The disc camo is odd looking though on the Panthers

    I have never heard of the disk camouflage before, but this is interesting! I bet it worked just as well, if not better than other period camouflages.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
