Dragon PzII C prebuilt, wondering about the insignia...

I was looking at images of the DAK prebuilt PzII lets call it C.(item # 71455)
On the side of the turret, there is a red rune... an inverted Y with an extended center line going down.
Anyone know what this is? Is it an attempt at the 15th Pz Div insignia with the base of the triangle missing?
Been looking around and I can't find that particular insignia in my references.
TIA

I looked in my references and found nothing. Like you said maybe an unfinished 15th PD insignia?



This forum talks about Panzer unit insignias https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/miss...y-t322664.html


A fellow Stefano, posts some in depth info on on early war markings. On page 31 show reference to the 15th PD.

Doesn't answer your question, but rules out others.

IMO the insignia in question would be the DML attempt at the 15th Pz Div

Randy...if you follow YAS's link to the 15th it takes you right to that tactical marking. Identical to the one you posted

Re: Dragon PzII C prebuilt, wondering about the insignia...

An interesting question. I have been looking through most of my Afrika Korps books for the marking without the complete unit marking (no line at the bottom). Also for any photo of a panzer II or any other tank with the 4th company markings. To see what division markings where used.



I have had no luck yet in identifying the marking your asking about. Maybe it was that company's, battalion individual style of using that marking. But we can't find any proof.



I'll keep looking, hopefully find an answer. Even thought of contacting Dragon Care on the Dragon site and ask them what reference was used to determine the decals/markings for the Panzer II.


I purchased several of the kits. What is interesting is on the instructions for the kit version the decal markings are listed as from an unknown unit.

Thanks for the input. It probably is a mstake, but I had never heard it mentioned in the forums. A careless mstake for sure.
