Thank you Bob Peak for creating the art for the Apocalypse Now movie poster (and many others) inspiring a young boy to become an artist.

*****
Panzer: Panzerbefehlswagen III, Ausf F
This was the mount of armoured unit commanders who wished to "lead from the front", as opposed to the relative safety of a more stationary command post.
Fitted with extra long-range radio equipment, a Befehlspanzer would keep the commander in touch with his own HQ and staff while keeping close contact with his men on the ground.
