Hi Sturm 78,

it is very difficult to ID a vehicle from this angle. I think it is a captured French Laffly type S 45 T with a 1,5 tons crane from Gauthier. Here a drawing of this tractor and a pic from the back (source of the drawing: "Tous les Laffly Militaires 1914 - 1940" bx Francoise Vuavillier, source of the pic: an expired ebay auction).

Best regards

Bert

Thanks, Bert !! I think you are right... Even the drawing of the tires matches ... :wink:

Hi Slava,

thank You very much for posting this very interesting pic. That could be a field modification. The crane looks like the Russian ATK - 1 autocrane on the chassis of a ZiS 6. Here a drawing of this vehicle.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Jose,

an interesting question. I think You are right, that it is a Morris-Commercial type CDSW, but a German field modification with a Bilstein recovery crane for 1 ton. Here a pic of this crane on an Einheitsdiesel truck.

Best regards

Hi Sturm 78,

interesting pics. Thanks for posting. As far as I can see the differences are in the cabin, the bumper and the arm with the counterweight. Here two pics with the two different vehicles in one pic (sources of the pics: www. kfzderwhrmacht.de and ebay).

Hi,

here a pic of a crane on a 18-ton semi-track Sd. Kfz. 9/1 with a 6-ton Bilstein crane. This vehicle belonged to the 10th Panzerdivision (source of the pic: https://digit.wdr.de).
