If it is then it seems to me that the decal sheet with my Leopard 1 is contradicing itself. It gives two options and both seem wrong to me, I will take one example. Turret numbers below:
If this does follow WWII numbering, then, as I understand it, the 1st number is the company, 2nd number is platoon, and 3rd number is the actual tank number within that platoon starting with 0 for platoon commander up to 4 (5 tanks per platoon). So the numbers "554" should denote tank No4 in the 5th platoon of the 5th company. with me so far.
Now, the tactical number/plate on the decal sheet that goes with the "554" is this:
Which, again to my understanding denotes , number 2 on left is for 2nd company of the 293rd(numbers on right) Panzer Battallion. You see where I'm going with this
So if this tank is from the 2nd company of the 293rd Panzer Battallion, why is the company number on the turret a 5
Tamiya are usually pretty good with their research and detail, so am I missing something or reading things wrongly ?
Also, while I'm at it, on the licence plate, apart from the Y denoting military vehicle, does the 6 digit number denote anything, or is it just a sequentual numbering system ? Phew
Hope somebody can shed some light on this.
