The first two volumes (Nuts & Bolts No. 35 and 36) in the 8-wheeled armored car series of the Wehrmacht, did not describe the complete story of these impressive 8-wheeled vehicles, since they dealt exclusively with variants on the Bässing-NAG chassis GS. Even before the impending military operations in North Africa, the military leadership demanded an armored scout vehicle, better adapted to the climatic conditions, the great distances and the tactical requirements of a desert war than the vehicle family on the GS chassis, and therefore awarded the contract to Bässing-NAG for the development of a successor type, which was based on the Tp chassis. Now with the release of Volume 3 the rest of the story can be told.

Volume 3 contains:

  • 208 pages, approx. 365 photos, of these 175 contemporary photos from manuals, combat and war fronts in b+w, most of them previously unpublished
  • 150 colour photos of vehicle components in public and private collections, 40 colour photos of the models from T.Greenland and V. Branigan
  • English / German captions
  • 14 pages of scale drawings of all versions and details in 1:35 scale from John Rue
  • 58 pages English / German text
  • 28 pages of scale drawings of all versions of this machine in 1:35 scale from Lieven DeConinck
  • 18 camouflage schemes from Carlos Vaquerizo
  • Tactical signs and tables of organization of units (Kriegstärke-Nachweisungen KStN) having these vehicles in their arsenal
