It always amazes me that this looks so unbalanced, yet does not end up on its back with the gun only fit for AA work.

I also cannot imagine the logistical nightmare of operating so many varieties of captured French, Czechoslovak, Soviet, Italian etc vehicles and ordnance

Well they weighed about 8.5 tonnes so several of those must be at the front. They also had a retractable spade blade to dig into the ground against recoil. That would have given them some extra stability. I know what you mean though – one shot and they look like they'd be on their ar*es :~)

As for the logistics, yeah, it must have been a nightmare. Even just the German-made stuff. Units often had multiple variants and they weren't always built with ease of maintenance uppermost in the designer's mind . . .

Cheers,
John

Well, since the Germans captured the entire French army (more or less), and the factories, there was no shortage of vehicles/guns to use or cannibalise. Same goes for the Czech stuff, with the addition that the 38t chassis was produced and modified until near enough the end.
