Default Odd looking Armored Car

Original caption: July 27, 1934—Heimwehr Mobilized. "Ready for Action." Vienna, Austria: All the Heimwehr forces in Vienna have been mobilized and ordered to get ready for immediate action. Armored cars are patrolling the main streets in case of disturbance.

(Skoda armored car PA2 ( called turtle ) adopted by Germans.)

And a second, rather amusing, picture.

Original caption: July 17, 1938—Vienna Police lifeboats competed on the Danube Canal in races. During the gathering, two soldiers demonstrated the art of swimming a machine gun along the Danube, spattering bullets as they went. The gun was mounted on a raft, and the two soldiers, using their legs like paddles, drove the craft upstream, demonstrating how simple it is for modern military methods to overcome natural forces such as floods.

I have never seen anything like that armoured car before and as for the machine gun mounted raft, very inventive and probably very cold.

Thanks for posting the pictures.
