This footage is from a documentary called “Roig i Negre”, produced by de la TV3 C, taking them originally from an anarchist SCW documentary. Despite I got the original from internet, due to the poor quality I went for the TV3C one
I would like to point out a detail that can be seen on the second photo. Marin and Mata classification can not be chronological, you can see here a mix of UNL with the short gun bulge, the long one and different mudguards…Once again improvisation, adapting the design to different chassis lenghts, the hood depending on engines, probably the mudguards’ position and lenght and even driver and gunners’ position
What is an AFV without turret? We can standarize a lot the production here. It is not essential a perfect centering of the ring; and we can leave the details for the end, like cutting the vision slit.
Standarize is not always possible so we have to do what we can. DT are strange so what if we mount…
A water-cooled Maxim MG08? 😯
Again a humble correction to Mata y Marín: The gun guards of the first series are only an adaptation of the water-cooled MG-08.
Despite the hugue improvisation, hard adaptation to change and scarce means, the workers of UNL (later factory 22) managed to produce one of the most efective combat vehicles of the war, comparable with similar designs from other countries and which was in service from 1937 to 1939 on both bands.
