Nice photos!!

The Hungarians acquired 240 Mercedes-Benz G5 4x4 Kübelwagens in the years 1939/40.

It is not impossible that some of these were diverted from Wehrmacht stock but it certainly accounts for the bulk of the production total of 378 G5's.

The Honvéd ( Hungarian Army ) got the G5s in place of the Horch m.E.Pkw. which presumably the Wehrmacht could not spare in the quantity required. They were known officially as 38M Mercedes-Benz G5.

I am searching after photos of the Mercedes-Benz G5..........

Wohhh...... Great photos, thank you very much Rnox!!

Largest fleet-owner of the Mercedes-Benz G5 was the Hungarian Army which by 1940 had 240 G5s in service and used them extensively as command cars during WWII and some even after the war.

The field car lookes like the typical examle of the standardized l.E.Pkw built by BMW, Hanomag and Stoewer but the Mercedes-Benz G5 has many detail differences.

Thanks mate ! Hans
