Hi Sturm 78,

that´s a Maschinensatz 37. Here three pics of the Maschinensatz 33 for comparing (source of the pics: http://gvtm.ru/zenitnyy_prozhektor_siemens) and one of the Maschinensatz 37 on a postcard from 1941 (source: ebay).

Best regards

Bert

Thank you very much for your help, Bert .. :)

I think I've never seen a wartime photo of a Maschinensatz 33...
Do you know the manufacturers of these generators ?

Regards

Hi Sturm 78,

there is a 150 cm searchlight 42 with a Maschinensatz in the Wehrtechnikmuseum in Röthenbach / Pegnitz in Bavaria. The Maschinensatz was produced by AEG in Hennigsdorf near to Berlin, the engine a BMW 6 cylinder with 3800 ccm, the generator made by Lloyd-Dynamowerke in Bremen.
The Maschinensatz 8 kW had also a BMW engine, the Maschinensatz 12 kW was also produced by EWH (Elbtalwerk Heidenau) in Saxonia and the 20 kW Maschinensatz had a Daimler-Benz engine.
That´s all I could find.

Best regards

Bert
