Hi Max,
According to Werner Oswald this is Mercedes L4500A TLF 25 bodied by Magirus, as delivered to Luftwaffe in September 1944.

Hello ilfil,
Thank you very much for the ID. I've never seen this type before-of course they had a very short service life.
Cheers,
Max

Hi Max,

maybe interesting for You, a similar vehicle, a so-called Tankspritze TF 25 also on the chassis of a Mercedes-Benz L 4500 A, produced for the Luftwaffe (source of the pic: "Feuerwehrfahrzeuge im Einsatz 1939 - 1945" by Michael Foedrowitz).

Best regards

Bert

Hi,

here apic of a captured French vehicle of a fire brigade, a Laffly BS C 2, now used by the Germans, probably on a French airport. Source of the pic: an expired ebay auction.

Regards

Bert

Hi Sturm,

Maybe an M 30 chassis.

Hi Sturm 78, hi Max,

it could also be the type M 25 from 1936 like on the pic below.

Best regards

Thanks for your answers, Max and Bert.

I suppose that it is impossible to differenciate...both are almost identical...

Here, another Magirus truck (from Ebay). Any idea ?

Hi Max,

an interesting pic! Could it be made after the end of the war? I have found a pic of a similar vehicle in the book "Feuerwehrfahrzeuge im Einsatz 1939 - 1945" by Michael Foedrowitz. It has the designation "Magirus-Mannschafts- und Gerätewagen" (Magirus personnel and material carrier) and "leichter Gasschutz-Kraftwagen" (light gas protection motor vehicle). Maybe the vehicle on Your pic was later converted into a fire engine.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Sturm 78,

don´t be surprised by my activity, but the Corona-virus makes me stay at home and so I have much time.
To Your questions:
pic 1: the vehicles are Mercedes-Benz L 1500. The German fire brigades didn´t get the type L 1100. More difficult is the designation LLG. That depends when the pic was made and to which formation the vehicles belonged:
from 1st May 1943: LF 8 (Löschfahrzeug)
till 30th April 1943: LLF (leichtes Löschgruppenfahrzeug) - Reichsministerium des Inneren (Reichs Ministry of the Interior) -
or KzS 8 (Kraftzugspritze) - Reichsluftfahrtministerium (Reichs Ministry of Aviation)

pic 2: I totally agree with You, that´s a Mercedes-Benz L 3750. But the same problem with the designation KS 25:
from 1st May 1943: LF 25 (Löschfahrzeug)
till 30th April 1943: GLG (großes Löschgruppenfahrzeug) - Reichsministerium des Inneren (Reichs Ministry of the Interior) -
or KS 25 (Kraftfahrspritze) - Reichsluftfahrtministerium (Reichs Ministry of Aviation)

Best regards

Bert
