though I am very likely to buy the book myself, could you please summarise what info is given on the Austrian PA-II? With the book written in czech language, even with it it will probably deny me the infos I look for
I was researching this elusive car for quite some time, wanting to build the resin model I own in this form.
I know of only 3 or 4 pictures. One is showing the car in the street during the Vienna uprising with a policeman (or Austrian soldier) on foot near it.
The other one or two (cant remember exactly, I am at work right now) show it after the Dollfuss assasination from quite some distance away. The last one partly shows it in the police barracks in Vienna after the Anschluss, already being in a somewhat sorry state.
From what I have seen, I tend to believe, that the car was in a uniform light grey colour, definatly lighter than both the german police uniform greygreen and the panzergrey of the Bundesheer armored cars. It seems to show no markings at all, not even a licence plate.
I already contacted the archive of the Vienna Gendarmerie, but they cant give any information on vehicle colours or marking of armored police cars in the pre war times.
Thats why I am particulary interested if the book contains any additional information. Your help would be greatly appreciated!
