WH098 Panzer Lehr Command Vehicle
One of the most famous German Panzer divisions taking part in the Battle of Normandy was the “Panzer Lehr”… Originally formed in Germany from training and demonstration troops (‘Lehr’ means ‘teach’) to provide additional armoured support for the anticipated Allied invasion of Europe. The division was in France when the invasion finally happened.
Here, you see the ‘Normandy’ version of the SdKfz 250/3 ‘Command Vehicle’ in typical 3-color camouflage of the period. Inside the vehicle are 2 x full-body figures – a driver and a radio operator.
