As an addendum to the discussion we had here last month on Opel based Kübelwagen here is another example I just found on ebay based on the 2,0 Liter model of 1934-1937.

A fine example of "thinking outside of the box".

Thank you, Max.

I just found a reference to "machine guns in perspex cupolas for lorries":

"Hauptmann Lunau führt dazu aus, dass der Einsatz von 600 MG 81 als Zwilling in Plexiglaskuppel auf Lkw seitens Gen d Pz Tr vorgesehen ist. Eine Verwendung für Pz.-Fahrzeuge muss jedoch abgelehnt werden."

"Captain Lunau explains that the use of 600 MG 81 in twin mounts in plexiglass domes on trucks is planned by Gen d Pz Tr. However, use on armored vehicles must be rejected."


source: Nov 1944 document, printed here: https://www.panzer-elmito.org/panzertru ... 944_D.html


So machine gun armed perspex domes appear to have been intended for trucks.
Possibly for the cabs, passenger side?
Is there any photographic evidence for this?
