T-34 in panzerzuge structure

Page 2 (PzTrWg 16)

The WR 550 D10 Diesel locomotive intended for the SP 42 armored train was rebuilt into an armoured engine (PZ 16) by adding gun platforms for Germans turrets (7,62cm F.K. 295/1) on both sides (here equipped with two additional T-34 on the platforms). With its powerful motor and 100mm side armor, it was the fastest and best armoured of the Germans armoured engins.
