Captured British AEC armored command vehicle, nicknamed "Moritz", served as a mobile command post for Gen. Cruwell's staff. Three of these AEC ACVs were captured from British 2nd Armored Division in April 1941 at Mekili. "Moritz" still retains the original British distruptive paint scheme, but carries German markings. Sitting alongside "Moritz" is a Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf. H.
