Hi all,

I found this picture some time ago on Ebay. An Einheits Diesel truck with a trailer.
Does anyone know if this is a standard military trailer of the german army or a captured trailer?

Hi Sturm 78,

a very interesting trailer on the pic, indeed. As far as I know it´s not a standard trailer, but I think this trailer is the rear part of a captured light British truck, either Beford MWD or Morris-Commercial CS 8. These trucks have similar flatbeds on the rear axle.

I´ll post two pics of these British trucks out of the booklet "From Dunkirk to Moscow. British trucks in Wehrmacht service" by Jochen Vollert.

Regards

Bert

You have an eagle eye, Bert. 8O 8O :lol: :lol: .

I think you are right. The wheels of these trucks look identical to the wheels of the trailer. Apparently the Germans re-used absolutely everything. :lol:

Two photos of a strange trailer with a He 111 bomber loaded 8O . I do not know if it was a standard trailer of the german army or just a civilian trailer requisitioned.

Hi Sturm,
Very similar trailers in the Vehicle identity requests section at http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... r#p1389136 and http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... r#p1401917

Thank you for your links, Markus.

It therefore seems that this was a standard trailer, no? :? Had any particular denomination? Sd.Ah. ??

Here another unknown trailer for me. I guess that this trailer was designed for motorized tow but in the image is being towed by horses. I think this trailer is related with engineers. Does someone knows something?

Hi Sturm 78,

to the trailer towed by horses. I think like You, that the trailer belongs to an engeneer unit, so called Brückenkolonne, to build bridges. In such a Brückenkolonne there were three different trailers with material for bridge building, except the trailers for pontoons: Bockwagen. The name of the trailer: Pf. 10 = Pionierfahrzeug 10

http://images.google.de/imgres?imgurl=h ... N%26um%3D1
The names of the other two trailers: Rampenwagen and Uferbalkenwagen.
I´ll post pics of models of the Rampenwagen Pf. 12 = Pionierfahrzeug 12 and of the Uferbalkenwagen.

That´s all I found about this sort of trailers.

Regards

Bert

Thank you very much for your answer, Bert. :D

But I think that the trailer of my photo does not match exactly with any of these types. Pf.10 Bockwagen, Pf.11 Pontonwagen and Pf.12 Rampenwagen: all these trailers had dual tires on both axles, while the trailer of my photo has single tires. :?

Uferbalkenwagen, What does it mean? :?

On the other hand, the Pf.10 and Pf.12 trailers are very difficult to differentiate.

Regards Sturm78.
