Production Start Date[edit]

There is a contradiction regarding production dates - 1933 versus post-1941; actually I think there is the wording of this article is very confused and unclear - after following the external references it is clear that this vehicle designation was actually a family of conversions of different trucks (no production start date is noted) - it looks like the author of this article has simply rearranged the wording of the references in such a way that it no longer makes sense.


I agree. I did some copyediting, hopefully clarifying a few things, but I have no references on this family of vehicles. It remains a poor article. Regards, DMorpheus (talk) 19:24, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Copyedit[edit]

I've done a copyedit as part of the Guild Of Copyeditors backlog elimination drive. Not an awful lot actually needed doing, but all the references on the page were to the same Geocities page which has now vanished. I've removed the links, which has changed the problem from "only references are to self-published sources" to "There are no references at all". Retagged as appropriate. Given the plethora of sources about every aspect of World War Two in general, and the armed forces of the Third Reich in particular, it surely shouldn't be that hard to come up with some proper references to what the text describes as a pretty widespread class of vehicles...
