Today it is a great pleasure for me to present the results of a mutual cooperation between Robert Cunningham and me. We both put together all data available for us on the topic of: 


A tank fitted device which was and still is surrounded with much misconception. We hope with our work, we are able to throw a little light on this matter and make clear what the Nahverteidigungswaffe was and, perhaps more important, what it was not.

Small update: Changed some design and reworked the article about the Infared-fitted "Nightfighting Panthers".
