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

Awesome photos, thanks for sharing! The MT-24 in your first post looks very German.
