    Hello
    I dive on ships sunk during ww2. On a German cargo ship sunk in 1945 off the Swedish West Coast I took a photo of a vehicle. It is pretty worn down but anyone who can tell what type of vehicle it is?

    Need more photos for a positive ID. How many wheels did it have?

    Could be anything from an Opel Blitz to one of the big German truck half tracks. Could even be a captured allied vehicle?

    The vehicle was placed at the bottom of one of the cargo holds. There was to much silt to see the wheels. I have attached another photo. You can see the seat behind the weel. Only one seat?

    Way too indistinct to match anything I know I'm sorry.

    One thing I can see is there don't appear to be any gear levers or sticks? And I might be wrong but is that a rotting timber frame to the left of the photo? Could be something like a crane cab maybe?

    Need a profile picture, but can't exactly just say to pop down the corner and take some more photos :P

    What kind of depth were you working at? Best I've done on a tank is 23m!
