Hi all,

I think these trucks are Büssing-NAG type 2.5 25 Burglöwe. Accordig to photo caption, in San Sebastian

Used the Legion Condor this model ?
The trucks seems new

Hi Sturm 78,

thank You very much for posting this very interesting pic.
You are right, these trucks are Büssing-NAG type Burglöwe. But I think it is the type 30. Here a pic of this type for comparing out of the book "Das Lastwagen-Album Büssing" by Bernd Regenberg.

B.t.w. this model (Burglöwe) is not mentioned in my list of vehicles used by the Legion Condor.

Best regards

Bert

There were a number of the ALVIS SALAMANDER fire fighting vehicles brought to Canada. These were the 6 wheeled machines based on the Stalwart chassis platform.

Does anyone know if one has survived anywhere in Canada?

Apparently the Legión Cóndor received 30 Büssing-NAG type 30 Burglöwe in February 1939 (that information was posted in a Spanish forum).
