ADMK Mulus - Austria

Is this really German?
It's obvious what the design is trying to achieve but it looks ridiculous and as I have never seen one before was likely never produced in any numbers.

Anybody seen this before or know anymore about it. My photo sleuthing juices are flowing now, no rest for me. mil-smile08
 
Well didnt take long :)

The vehicle is a an ADMK Mulus of the Austrian Army
Produced in 1935, this Austrian wheel-cum-track tankette had the unique arrangement that was able to swing the front wheels upward via gear-driven arms. They then could be removed and put into brackets on the rear of the vehicle. The rear wheels could also be removed by driving the tracks up on blocks. A strange feature was that the front arms acted as a framework for the driver's seat.

A very odd armored vehicle, little is known of its status with the German Army.
