13th wheel fixing

Some of the images in the last post may have shown how the spare wheel was attached to the right superstructure side but this type of bracket does not seem to have been used on the other locations where wheels were stored. This image may show the other style of bracket without a wheels attached;



If the hoop on the rear section of the right fender is indeed a spare wheels bracket then it must have pivoted either forward or backward to allow the wheel to be stored. If the same system was used on the left fender on the two spare wheels then they must have forward and backward because of the closeness of their position.

Unfortunately again the Kompanie number is obscured by the shadow of the turret hatch and other relevant detail hidden by the archives logo.
