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
