Response to LSSAH Sd.Kfz. 231's?
The LAH only had two of these vehicles during the French campaign, one from the original two issued to the unit in 1937, and one a replacement for the vehicle lost on the first day of the war in Poland.
However, as there was one 8 Rad KO'd early in the campaign, it may be only one took much part in the Battle of France.
The two vehicles were
SS-1088 'Körner II' (replacement for the 'Körner' lost in Poland)
SS-1089 'Laforce' (original vehicle from 1937)
The LAH also had two SdKfz 232
SS-1090 'Faust II' (replacement for original vehicle 'Faust' also lost on the first day of combat in Poland)
SS-1091 'Casella' (original vehicle from 1937)
Laforce was photographed throughout the campaign so would be the best bet for a LAH SdKfz 231 in France, 1940.
I have researched a set of decals for Echelon, which hopefully will be released in the future, which covers all of these 8 Rad vehicles of the LAH.
Interested in and researching the vehicles and weapons of the Leibstandarte
