Ehrhardt E-V/4 is a WWI-era armoured car of German origin.

DescriptionEdit

Developed as an anti-riot vehicle for the German police, the Ehrhardt E-V/4 and its derivates saw service in small numbers with the German Army in World War 1. Since the vehicle was not designed for travelling off road, and had a high silhuette to overlook crowds, its combat performance was limited. After the war, some Ehrhardts stayed in service with the German police until 1939. During the Kapp coup in 1920, a few Ehrhardts were also used by the insurgents militia. Whether the Ehrhardt E-V/4 has belonged to the equipment of the Dutch army, is uncertain. Some sources believe that a single one, left behind by retreating German units, had fallen in Dutch hands after WW1. Other sources report, the Dutch army had acquired eight of the vehicles from Germany in the early 1930s. It is most likely at least, that they were not operationable any more by the time of the German invasion and have not participated in battles.

So although not historically accurate, the Ehrhardt E-V/4 is available in a few scenarios to the Dutch army in Battlegroup42. It is armed with five 7.92mm machine guns: one on each side, and one more on a rotating turret. The vintage vehicle of course was completly obsolete by the outbreak of World War 2, but its large number of machine guns can be a sound deterrent to enemy infantry.

It can be found on 4005-Airfield Ockenburg and 4005-Willemsbrug.

TriviaEdit

The model of Ehrhardt E-V/4 is provided by the Battlefield 1918 mod team under a content trade agreement.
