Hi all,

This Scammell Pioneer R100 belonged to which unit of the Luftwaffe? What would be the location and date of the photo?

Hi Franklin,

sorry, I cannot tell You to which unit of the Luftwaffe this Scammel Pioneer belongs. But the location is Crete and this multi-tone camouflage was introduced from early 1943. (source of the information: "British Military Trucks in Wehrmacht Service" by Jochen Vollert.

Hi Sturm 78,

Your vehicle on the pic You posted could be a tractor: VOMAG type 5 LR 434.

Best regards

Hi Bert,

It is possible that you are right but I think it is difficult to ensure...

Hi Sturm 78,

thank You for Your reply. After checking the pic You posted I´m rather sure, that the vehicle on Your pic is a tractor, not a truck. The engine of the truck is normally fixed in front of the front axle, against that the engine of this tractor, called "Eilschlepper" is moved behind the front axle because of the better distribution of the weight. In this way the center of gravity was moved to the rear axle with the drive. This vehicle has a shorter driver’s cab without sleeping compartment and a short platform instead of the ballast bridge. The vehicle had the radiator grille of the initial model with the VOMAG lettering. I think it is the type 5 ZR 438. Here a pic of such a vehicle out of the book "VOMAG - eine Legende in Bildern" by Christian Suhr & Ralf Weinreich.

Best regards

Bert

Hi,

I´m awfully sorry. I made a mistake. Of course, it is the type 5 ZR 434.
