Aperçu du document


The Germans captured large numbers of MkIV's, repaired them and
used them against their former owners. The Germans had far more
captured MkIV's than they did their own A7V tanks.
The Germans considered replacing the Lewis machine guns with
Maxims, but it was easier to re-chamber the Lewis to take the
German '08 cartridge than to redesign the gun mounts.
The 6 pounders were another matter. The Germans discovered that
their 5.7 cm gun used in the A7V could be easily adapted to fit the
MkIV sponsons. There is debate over the origin of the 5.7 cm guns.
They are variously described as Belgian or Russian, sometimes as
"Sokol" guns. The best information I have is that they were
Nordenfeldt guns, designed by a Swede, made in England then sold
to other nations, including Belgium and Russia, from whom the
Germans captured them in sufficient quantity to equip their tanks.
They added a hatch to the roof of the driver's cupola of some
vehicles.
Germany deployed its tanks in Units (abteilungen) of 5 at fu
ll
strength. Mix of male and female depended on how many of each
had been captured and made serviceable. Assignment of individual
tanks to a particular abteilung was usually permanent, but might
change after a trip to the workshop. There were no battalions as
such, or brigades.
Vehicle #210, "Bob", was tank #3 in the 13th ATD (Sturmpanzer
Abteilung) at Roux in 1918. Sepp Dietrich of WWII fame/infamy,
was a sergeant in this unit. Other tanks in this unit were #201 "Max",
#104 "Kathi", #112 "Marianne" and #103, "Kerlchen".
