Great review thank you!

I browsed through the book at a Berlin bookstore, it's definitely on my "to buy" list.

Cheers,

Thank you all for your replies,im glad you liked my review.

Roman > Im not really into that period,but i this is what is says below the picture "Most of the captured Wermacht equipment such as this Stug III with the tactical number 469 entered the 4th tank brigade,formed ad Osek. Ill open my other books today or tomorrow to see if i can post any additional info on that one .

Kozara is not really a museum, its is a military barrack.It was opened for public for some time,but now when the Republic of Serbia's military is organized it's not opened for public anymore.Here is a album with some photos from the time it was public.

Im pretty sure this is the reason?

Dragoslav,a good friend of mine and myself just had a little chat about this,his more into WWII than me.

He says it is G version for sure.
It is displayed at the Kalemegdan museum in Serbia,here is a link with a good walkaround of it.

yes, it is. Because I suspect that it is the same vehicle that I did based on the Panzerwrecks2 pictures. I would like to know what was actually inside this half-track since that was not a factory produced, but a field conversion. I have seen this album previosly and the interior is closed by large sheet of metal on top...Since in the other topic there was information that now the vehicle is undergoing restauration I thought that maybe locals know what is the status now.
