Retro babe"...nice lack of clothes..."
Panzer Sdkfz 234/2 Puma
Probably photographed at an allied test range after WWII. Since the Puma was the most advanced armoured car design to come out of WWII, captured vehicles were extensively tested by the allies. Unfortunately they were later scrapped instead of going to museums and none exist today. Note the turret numbers applied straight through the paper stencils, but without the usual "touching up" with red (or black) and white colouring. For those not familiar with the Sdkfz 234/2, please note that the turret has been rotated 180 degrees on this vehicle, normally the gun would be pointing in the opposite direction.
