Great finds! A few of those prototypes still survive.

Awesome photos, the second one down TJ Mark I is very similar looking to the Brits Bren Gun carriers

The angle of the armor on the armored car in post #1 reminds me of the German Sd.Kfz 250 half track. Could have been a lot friendly fire incidents if that had been fielded.

Yea absolutely it does. Makes you wonder if they were doing a little reverse engineering from examples that were brought back from North Africa, Tunisia
