First Battalion of Armored Cars Machine-Guns

Possibly, during one of the frequent patrols on the outskirts of Kiev, Ukraine, spring of 1918. 

This unique type of Ehrhardt Armored Car, Model 1915 was,  a few months later (in late spring or early summer of 1918), captured by the Bolsheviks.
Later, in September of that year, would change hands. This time it was the Ukrainians White, belonging to Don Army, which is what the Bolsheviks wrested.
The Ukrainians baptized their new armored car with the name of his captor: "Colonel Bezmolitvenny".
Well the Reds or well the Whites, made some significant modifications to the vehicle.
Of these give due consideration in a future post, definitely clarifying the issue of armaments and other issues related to this topic and so far unknown.

Primer Batallón de Coches Blindados Ametralladores

Posiblemente, la fotografía está tomada durante una de las frecuentes patrullas realizadas en las inmediaciones de Kiev, en Ucrania, durante la primavera de 1918.

Este único tipo de Coche Blindado Ehrhardt, Modelo 1915, fue capturado por los Bolcheviques unos meses después (finales de primavera o principios de verano de 1918).
Posteriormente, en septiembre de ese mismo año, volvería a cambiar de manos.
Esta vez fueron los Ucranianos Blancos, pertenecientes al Ejército del Don, quienes lo arrebataron a los Bolcheviques.
Los ucranianos bautizaron a su nuevo coche blindado con el nombre de su captor: "Coronel Bezmolitvenny".
O los Rojos o los Blancos realizaron algunas significativas modificaciones en el vehículo.
De ellas daré debida cuenta en un próximo post, aclarando definitivamente la identificación del armamento y algunas otras cuestiones relacionadas con este tema y desconocidas hasta ahora.
