I've seen a number of images of the Ehrhardt EV4 (there were at least 3 iterations of the vehicle - 1915, 1917 & 1918) similar to this;



But what really interests me about this picture are the helmets the Freikorps troops are wearing; the two at the front with the flame-thrower(?) are wearing your regular WW1 German stahlhelm; the four behind them are wearing stahlhem without the usual peak over the eyes, & they appear to have been made that way.

Anyone have any info? ???

I think they might have been the helmets that some "Sturm" troops had which had visors attached ? I think they were worn when "body armour" was worn ?

Seem to recollect seeing them at the IWM in London as a kid, when it was still a museum rather than a "visual" experience

OK, thanks, Chris! Looks like I found it! :D



German M-1916 Turkish Pattern, obviously the ones in the photo didn't make it to their intended destination.

Ah, of course the requirement for Turkish headgear to have no "visor" or peak.

Change wheels to modern like on Stryker and such.   Bushmaster 25mm.  50 or 30 cal MGs.  TOW launcher?
Add reactive armor blocks.  Couple antennas.  Night vision devices.  Smoke launchers.  Sure there is more....

Or scream like a boy...


I think you will find that while the horses would sometimes have gotten spooked, they were 'war horses' and would have been somewhat accustomed to the sound etc.
