    This version was the short version of the Taube. Was done in the frotline. With this shorter version they had a bigger range. Found sometimes in the field.

    Thanks! So they were made locally by cutting down from a full shell? Not an official version then?

    Think they were made locally.. The shell is cut and then adapted. The shells I have seen were all different. So I do not think it was done in a factory;perhaps in small shops behind the fro,tline.
