Anyone ever seen this device on a Panzer I before? (Taken in Warsaw 1939 after the battle). 

I assume it’s some antenna fitting for a radio, but the Panzer isn’t a befehlswagen and I’ve never seen it before.

that website has a whole series if anyone wants to have a look. http://wraki39.pobitwie.pl/index.php?/search/1720 first time seeing anything like it

On the discord someone suggested rails for a fascine, which is interesting.

The number (I09) is a 'command' number afaik and one of the captions says "Z.Art.Rgt.53.001 # 055 Photo soldiers Art.Rgt.53 at destroyed armored tank in WARSAW Poland 1939." So I wondered if maybe that was antenna added on as a way to back fit an Fu 6 transmitter to the Aus B chassis and maybe it's a tank for forward artillery spotting.

Not sure tho.
