Eh Dottore you are forgetting that we AFV nuts can always do a technical or a civilian impressed one, besides there is also the commercial role of certain military softskins, a commercial Humvee or an Opel Blitz with adverts on to name a couple from different periods ... I agree we lack this section and we should work on it!
Apart ambulances, firengines, rallycars and industrial diggers ... plenty to do weathering there! So no restrictions to be military1[/quote]
Ok here is an example of an impressed car or small van forget the place but if some interested tell me....
ok find it ...A German soldier in Westende, Belgium washes a civilian car impressed into German military service.
The tactical symbol for a motorized Pionier Company has been painted on the left front fender alongside a small letter "K" and above the Wehrmacht Heer prefix (WH). The right fender carries an unknown unit emblem.
The car still carries the civilian license plate IZ-226285 where IZ is the prefix for the Rhine Provinz. Once officially incorporated into a German unit, the car would be assigned a military license plate. The German military and government license plate prefixes during WWII were: WH = Wehrmacht Heer (army), WM = Wehrmacht Marine (navy), WL = Wehrmacht Luftwaffe (air force), SS [runes] = Schutzstaffel, OT = Organization Todt, Pol = Polizei, DR = Deutsche Reichsbahn, and RP = Reichspost.
