Schwimmwagen pictures and comments

Discussions on the vehicles used by the Axis forces.
Long-time forum member Ron Klages (1939 - 2007) generously shared his knowledge and the results of his impressive research with the forum, and this section has therefore been renamed in his honour.

That's an odd schwimm carius, its "hull" does not cover the front axle as most do. What typ would this be?

I agree, must be post war. Look at the clothing of the boy in the first photo, especially the footwear - and whats that car in the parking lot in the background - a Trabant maybe?

Nice photos all the same.
