Hi John,
Your 3-axle truck with trailer is Skoda workshop with full designation 6ST6L-APD-R, a special order for Rumanian army (that's why the "R" is at the designation end), depending of the purpose they were fitted with different equipment and may tow a single- or two-axle trailer.
The workshops on the same chassis used by the Czech army, and later by the Wehrmacht too, were externally different, their trailers also. They were designated simply 6ST6L-APD (APD = mobile field workshop in Czech).
Of course the vehicles were named on the company founder Emil Skoda but probably you'll like to hear also that in Czech "skoda" means "pity". :D
HTH
Cheers!

Hello Sturm.
Maybe Renault.
Here is a comparison with the model Renault YFAB
(there are similarities)

Many thanks for your responses, Sturm78 and Ilfil. Every morning when I look out of our front room windows, I see my neighbour's two Skodas parked outside his house. (Both are cars not trucks though...)

Hi Slava,

very good ID with Renault. I totally agree with You. I think it is not the type YFAB from 1933, but a later model, maybe the type YFAC/YFAD from 1934 or YFAE/YFDE from 1935.

Best regards

Hi Dan.
Maybe (very similar) Horch 830BL or (Horch 851) Pullman Cabriolet (1935-37)

Hello all,
Please can someone tell me the Kfz number and purpose of this Protze? I think that the side has a part of the canvas cover hanging over the wheel arch and that the weapon protruding is a MG13.
Thank you,
Kerry.

Hi Kerry,

I guess that this Krupp truck is a field modification without Kfz. number. I don´t know his purpose... :?

On the other hand, Nobody for the Bussing-NAG trucks of my earlier posts ??

Well, here another truck to identify. I am not sure if a rare Mercedes-Benz LG4000 ??

Thank you, uncle

It is possible that you are right although the cab and other details are different...

Hi Sturm 78,

to the two pics of the Büssing-NAG truck from 09 February:
it cannot be the type 550, because the truck on Your pics has only four flaps (as far as I can see) on the motor hood. The type 550 had five flaps, because of the engine FD 6. So it could be the type 502, the predecessor of the type 550 with a GD 6 engine and four flaps.

Best regards

Bert
