It seems that they were made in around late 1943 early 1944.

Seems to be used on the South of France, some by an regular WH unit (11.Pz-Div???)

Operation Dragoon by William Breuer (ISBN 0-515-09805-1)
Tidy no nonsense book on the invasion operations.

He has another title -
"Geronimo" (ISBN 0-312-07761-0) about US airborne operations in WW2 which also covers Dragoon in fare detail - 1st Allied Airborne Task Force.

Speaking of Panhards. What type is the one used by a Das Reich Kriegsberichter-unit at Kursk? It's a fairly well-known photo.

Also used by LAH.

I've the RPM models still on the box - indeed I almost have all the versions made by them - while nice they have some problems, and for some people, they have too much pieces....Razz Twisted Evil

I have plans to do a 1943 Das Reich unit sometime in the future and then it would be nice to have one as a novelty. At the moment I'm focusing on my Fallschirmjäger force though.

Regards
